About Cartoon Studio freelance cartoonist

My name is Richard Duszczak a freelance cartoonist for over 38 years.

I am a very experienced cartoonist producing professional quality cartoon artwork (traditionally or digitally) for PR and advertising agencies, promotions, presentations, advertising, business-to-business, editorial, cartoon strips, caricatures, character creation/development, educational and children's books, health and safety training cartoons/ videos/manuals, corporate Christmas cards, calendars, gift wrap and greetings cards(able to produce own ideas or illustrating yours.)

I have worked with most of the major greetings card companies over the years: Hallmark, Emotional Rescue, Quitting Hollywood, Carlton Cards, Second Nature, Britannia, Camden Graphics, Jarrolds Publishing, Simon Elvin and Scandecor.

I very much enjoy (Love!) creating humorous illustrations. I pride myself on my commitment and attention to detail.

Exactly what I asked for

This was the second time I have used Richard at the Cartoon Studio, and once again he came up trumps.
He delivered exactly what I wanted, in a timely manner, at a great price, with excellent results. I gave him a brief and some photographs, and after a brief phone call he drafted something within a couple of days.
So all in all I'd say that when the time comes again for this sort of product, I will have no hesitation in contacting Richard.

Thank you Nigel for taking the time to write those kind words. The briefs for the cartoons were detailed and the reference photos you supplied were extremely helpful.

Let Richard Duszczak draw on his talent.

Richard gave a first class service from the word go, he discussed my requirements, offered an initial proposal and was open to suggestion about the final composition. The drawing arrived well before my deadline and was excellent. The recipient could not have been more delighted with his gift which now has pride of place in his home. Anyone can approach Richard with a commission with 100% confidence.

Efficient, great quality, excellent value

This firm is outstanding. We have been working with them for a number of years designing an activity map. They have never been on site, but using a mixture of aerial photos, customer photos and a few tweaks we always end up with an amazing product.
Richard is a delight to work with, happy with multiple tweaks and far more reasonable than a design or advertising firm - outstanding work!
