Above: A custom cartoon by Mark Anderson.
Today, my pal Mark Anderson writes about how to make it as a cartoonist in today's economy. He has a lot of good advice on markets for cartoons. The general rule here is to diversify. I agree: there are a lot of potential cartoon markets.
Sure, you may get a potential client who wants a cartoon and when you bring up the topic of being paid for your work, you might get this reply like I did 2 weeks ago (I smudged out the name, even though it's easy enough to find this message in my Twitter feed backlog):
But don't let that get you down. You just can't.
Like Mark says, keep moving. There are people who love and value cartoons out there.
