So this week I thought I’d finally follow through and start an ongoing series of weekly blog posts documenting what I do as an aspiring cartoonist. So it’s kind of like a blog, and kind of like an income report. I wanted to do something like this for a couple years, and I started something on HubPages a while back, but only now I think I have the…I dunno…mental strength or whatever to keep it going.
We’ll see 😉
So here’s what I did this week…
- Comic strips drawn: 2
- Comic strips published: 2
- Income Earned: $1.84
- Income Received: $0
New Comic Strips
So this week I drew two comics: one for my Old Joke Killer series (it’s just a parody, where OJK goes around killing old jokes that have been done to death by various cartoonists) and one that was just a quick thumbnail sketch that I decided to just post as-is.
100 Days Of Cartooning
I also came across a drawing challenge on Youtube called “100 Days of Making Comics” and decided to do it. Basically, you just try to spend at least 30 minutes a day drawing comics, and if you want to make videos/vlogs about it, then do that too. Since I’ve been telling myself for years that I need to get on Youtube regularly, I knew that I needed to do this.
So I did Days 1 and 2 over the weekend…
After a couple months of going AWOL, I finally drew and submitted another comic to WriteHackr Magazine, but I haven’t heard back yet, so no income from them for this past week. I have another idea to draw up and send to them, so I intend to do that this next week.
I just checked and found out that I got a couple more sales on Zazzle.com. Last I checked, I only had 2 sales ever, so sometime in the past few months I sold a couple more items. If that was you, thanks! Anyway, since I have NO IDEA when those 2 items sold…let’s just say I sold them this week!
Is that true? Maybe
Does it matter? No
Will I count it towards this week’s earnings anyway? Absolutely
Okay, so that pretty much sums up this week in cartooning. If you want to see all the comics I do throughout the week, follow me on Instagram (I’m most active on there).
