“Looking back, the reasons I went into teaching is because I do not know how to be a cartoonist. I have no friends from this field and knew no one that could guide me along the path. That was more than 20 years ago. But now 2022, I still could not see how a young artist can pursue his dream if he says he wants to be a comic artist or cartoonist. I find this unacceptable! I decided to pull together a team and start the Sg Cartoon Resource Hub to find an answer to this. If the industry does not have a clear vision of the cartooning future, let us begin by giving one.”
One of the aims of starting the SG Cartoon Resource Hub was to learn from fellow comic creators and to distill some of their hard-earned lessons and share them with other artists. That is why we did a series of video interviews with Singapore comic artists…
Check out Singapore Original Comics Festival’s interview with our SG Cartoon Resource Hub founder, Ho See Kum, where he shares his thoughts about the role of comics in school education, his experience in being an art educator, and more.
