Stephen Collins on making funny cartoons

As a keen-eyed observer of modern life, Stephen Collins produces some of the funniest cartoons around. He tells us about his working process, where he gets his ideas from – and reveals just what goes on at the ‘Whimsy Mine’, via a brand new comic drawn specially for Creative Review.

Stephen Collins’ work has featured in a number of magazines and currently appears in the Guardian Weekend Magazine every Saturday. He published his debut graphic novel, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil, in 2013 and his Some Comics strips collection the following year.
