Looking for Cartoonists

Must be something in the air!

I've gotten a number of emails like,

"Hi, I'm doing rights clearances and I saw a photo/cartoon of [name of cartoonist] on your blog so can you tell me how to find him/her/the estate of this cartoonist so our publishing house can buy a cartoon for our publication/textbook/whatever."

I've had three so far this week and it's only Tuesday morning.

There seriously must be a tiny boom in textbook publishing somewhere. (Most of these queries are for textbooks.)

And it's nice to see the diligence and integrity of these professional rights-clearances people. They really want to find the person who owns the rights to the cartoon that they want to purchase.
