Richard Duszczak, Chesterfield, United Kingdom Member Since October 2006 Artist Statement Richard Duszczak (Pronounced Du-shack!) is a reasonably well known cartoonist in the United Kingdom, on a mission to become a reasonably well known cartoonist in the world. (And when he achieves that he'll up his goals to become a EXTREMELY WELL KNOWN cartoonist in the world...etc etc.!) He doesn't confess to be a Motivational Guru, but he has read all the books and listened to the tapes by the truck load: Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich was the one that set him on the road to success so to speak. Others followed...Clement Stone, Og Mandino, Zig Ziglar, Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, Brian Tracey, Dennis Waitley, Anthony Robbins, Wyne Dyer, Stephen Covey, David Schwartz, Peter Thompson and many more. So he's had extremely good teachers!
Richard is a self taught cartoonist who used cartoon illustrated affirmations to motivate himself to carry on when rejection of his work followed rejection. Starting out without any graphic arts experience back in 1980, he learnt everything he knows from reading books and taking action. You could say he graduated from the College of Hard Knocks. (And he did take some knocks as his work was pretty poor when he first started!) But with sheer determination, hard work, perseverance and more hard work he began to make a living as a cartoonist. His lifelong dream.
