14 year old cartoonist, Edgar Lowman, started his cartoons towards the beginning of his time at secondary school. Now in year 10 he is still creating his imaginative adventures and is looking to share them with everyone else!
Coming from a very creative family, it’s hardly surprising these funny mini cartoon strips just flow from Edgar’s hand. A hint of inspiration comes from comics he has read himself: the classic Beano and comic duo Wallace and Gromit.
His cartoon adventures follow friends George and Brian, two calamity magnets, in a slap-stick style of their day to day life. There are holiday themed strips too; a Halloween strip sees George trying to trick Brian but they find themselves faced with a real monster!
Edgar has written more comic strips called ‘MADventures’ about the even more adventurous Michael and Nibbles McGlee whose shenanigans have included a trip to the moon! These characters Edgar featured in a magazine he created for a competition at school called The Big Challenge.
