This week’s Tribute is to The Dandy’s Desperate Dan created by Dudley D. Watkins. This is the first time I have tried to draw someone else’s character in a different style. Desperate Dan has mostly been drawn in a more realistic (though still cartoon) style up until shortly before The Dandy ceased publication where Jamie Smart took over and used a more cartoon-like style. Desperate Dan is possibly my favourite humour comic character, and can still be found in Dandy annuals and summer specials.
