These 40 Comics By This Artist Show The Quirky Perspective Of Non-Living Objects And What Would Happen If They Could Talk Interview With Artist

Take a good look around you. There’s a lot of things that might surround you, depending on where and how you live. Now, imagine if the objects that were close to you (your pen, phone, desk, computer, etc.) all had a will of their own?

The idea may seem crazy, but comic illustrator Dylan, the creator of the popular webcomic ‘The Daily Dunc’ not only imagined this in a real-life scenario, but decided to illustrate what it would be like if inanimate objects came to life and had the ability to voice their thoughts.

Bored Panda reached out to the artist.

“One of my main goals and hopes is to just put a smile on someone’s face and help them to forget any stress or anxiety that they may be going through. Even if it’s a really bad pun or dad joke, I hope that along with any eye roll comes a smirk or a giggle. That’s all I can hope for. And it’s really fun to also incorporate some personal stories, events, and my own fears and anxieties into the content; People have left comments or written to me saying that they really can relate to certain things, which is always such a great feeling. And it’s been amazing creating some cool connections with other artists and even my followers!”

First, we asked the artist if he had any major influences in his life that might’ve helped him to develop and refine his style.

“Growing up I was a huge Disney fan. I used to pause animated movies on the VCR just so I could sit there and draw characters like Aladdin or Simba from the TV. I was also a very big follower of Garfield and Calvin & Hobbes comics and would often mimic their styles in my own cartooning. If I look back at some of my old drawings (I still have them all from when I was a kid), I can see a lot of influence of Garfield and Odie,…mostly the oval-shaped eyes and the little curl that Jim Davis would draw at the armpits, or neckline. Today, I notice a lot of Calvin & Hobbes influence in my comics and have even been told that they can see a resemblance in the style. Another big influence of mine was online comic artist Natalie Dee. I discovered her when I was in my early 20’s and it’s safe to say she inspired me to start my own daily comic. She cracked me up!”#2

Art, in any kind of form, takes a lot of time not only to practice but also to produce, therefore we asked Dylan how long it takes him to fully finish his comics.

“It can vary for sure but I’d say somewhere in the ballpark of 3-4 hours, depending on if it’s a single or multi-panel comic. Sometimes the image can almost repeat or there isn’t a lot of change in the character movement so those can go a little faster than if there are a lot of different scene changes or variations in the character movements/expressions. Additionally, coming up with the concept itself can take some time, and sometimes even a rework of the last panel and punchline is necessary if it doesn’t quite turn out how I had envisioned it.”

As we mentioned before, sometimes creative work can cause quite a burnout, therefore we asked the artist how he dealt with that as well.

“Absolutely. I somehow did a brand new comic every day in 2018! That took a lot of energy. Lately, I find myself reposting old content but I have a running list of concepts that I need to revisit and get some new stuff out there! But yes, getting burnt out can happen for sure. I work a full-time job as well as other life responsibilities (as we all do) so it can sometimes be tough to find the time and motivation. A break here and there, however, can really help reset the creative engine and get things going again!”#3

Being an artist is not easy, one can easily encounter a lack of inspiration, burnout, etc, so we wanted to ask Dylan about his ideas for the comics.

“Ideas for The Daily Dunc come to me from all angles. In the early days of creating them, I’d most often do a one-panel illustration of childhood memory – a cartoon of me in soaking wet strips of cloth used to wrap me up for my mummy costume on Halloween on a very rainy night (This actually happened) or a drawing of my sister and I saw what we both claimed was a caveman walking out of our bedroom closet. (This also really happened…well, at least we thought it did!) The comic then evolved to more illustrated interpretations of anxieties that I would have or frustrations of mine in a given life situation. I tend to always draw inspiration from what really is going on around me and in my life. 

Whether it’s poking fun at the fact that I’m deathly scared of raw chicken juice or irritated that someone left an empty toilet paper roll on the spindle, I always strive to transform negative thoughts into something funny and relatable. I also just love a bad pun or dad joke! A lot of the time I create silly punchlines or one-liners using inanimate objects as the characters and players in the scene. It’s just fun to slap a pair of eyes, a stupid grin, and flailing arms onto two pieces of grocery items, for example, and have them yell at each other for no reason. It’s even more fun to have them be flipping each other off! I like characters with a little bit of attitude.”#5
