Nate Fakes has many descriptions to his name; he is a Los Angeles-based full-time cartoonist, writer, and donut enthusiast. He is also a creator of purrfect cat cartoons inspired by his adorable feline called Tiger. Fakes says that his cat motivates him to be lazy, and encourages him to swipe at random objects and clean himself daily. He gathered his illustrations and published a book which was approved by the creator of Garfield Jim Davis.
Alongside his cat cartoons, the artist has “dabbled in almost all elements of cartooning.”
“For example, I’ve resided as an in-house cartoonist for an agency where I created Red Bull cartoons for worldwide advertising campaigns with storyboards, print ads, digital ads, and television commercials,” the artist shared on his personal website. “I also have a syndicated series, Break of Day, that is read daily worldwide in print and online.”
His work has been featured in various media, including MAD Magazine, New York Times, greeting cards, books, ads, etc. and he’s worked with big brand names such as Disney, Scholastic, and Warner Bros.
