John NortonMy name is John Norton. I draw cartoons.

I was born and raised in California, and cartooning is something I was always encouraged to do. Fortunately, I didn’t need much encouraging–my homework, notebooks, and binders had cartoon doodles scrawled all over them. Some teachers liked it; some teachers told me to stop. Some professors thought I wasn’t paying attention; others knew it was my way of absorbing information. I created my own comic strip in 7th grade and read as many Garfield, Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes books as I could get my hands on. Cartooning has always been what I return to. It’s like home.

I’m going to be drawing cartoons regardless of whether or not you commission a piece from me. But as long as I’m drawing, why don’t we both get something out of it? I’ll create a professional, custom cartoon illustration for you, and you’ll give me an opportunity to practice my craft for someone other than myself. I’m happy to work with you to create the perfect cartoon for your needs.
