Ben Cameron’s cartoons make people cry. At least, that’s the feedback we’ve received whenever we’ve tweeted his work via @BuzzFeedUK. He tells me:
“I describe my work as simple yet emotive. My doodles started as a way to remain creative while working a soul-destroying job in retail. I would keep scraps of paper in my pocket and draw doodles to show colleagues. Rude, funny, cheeky, maybe even mildly offensive. Anything to get a reaction. It’s an instant gratification.
“Being able to make someone laugh, coo or cry from a few lines or words is amazingly addictive. Also, I use animals in place of humans, i feel it takes the edge off slightly and for some reason, slightly more relatable.”
