Mark Anderson: Why I'm a Cartoonist

Above: an old "Cartoonists Make Big Money" ad for the Federal Schools from a March 1922 issue of Modern Mechanix via Drawn.

My pal, cartoonist Mark Anderson, posts today about why he does what he does.

I was smiling when I read his confession that he loves to make people laugh. Hey, me too!

Here's just one paragraph:

When I was little my mom gave me a joke book that became the bane of my family's existence. It was as thick as the Sears fall catalog, and the jokes were terrible, but I toted that joke book around, reciting them over and over to anyone within earshot just waiting for that laugh.

Go read it all.
