Jason Chatfield is a cartoonist and a comedian working in New York City, and is originally from Perth in Western Australia. You can find his work in The New Yorker and MAD magazine.
Jason happens to be the vice president of the National Cartoonist Society, which is the world's biggest cartooning organization, founded in the 1940s and it covers the full spectrum of cartooning.
It is safe to say that Jason is definitely one of the artists we love, so we went to see him in New York and asked him some questions that you all can hopefully learn something new from.

Part 2 - Stand up comedy and cartooning
Being a cartoonist, you don´t really receive any laughs when you put your comics out there. So when Jason started doing stand up comedy, he found out that it is incredibly rewarding to get feedback on a joke immediately. Then he combined stand up comedy with cartooning, which became his magic formula.
"I've never once hit a creative block that New York didn't unblock for me." Jason Chatfield
