It’s November, and it looks like I am the featured “Drawing Board of the Month” at The Cartoonist Studio website… they must be running out of real cartoonists to feature.
The Cartoonist Studio is a fun website designed to connect cartoonists with their fans online, showing interested readers a glimpse at the artists, their work spaces, their processes, and more. They also sell stuff, have auctions of original work, and last year conducted a “So You Wanna Be a Cartoonist” contest where the winner received a development deal from Creators Syndicate. Looks like they will be doing the same again this year, with Universal Uclick co-sponsoring the contest.
From their “About Us” page:
We are all cartoonists….duh!
Well, I suppose we can give you more information than that…
We created The Cartoonist Studio as a way to bring us closer to the fans who enjoy our funny little drawings–those characters and scribbles that make our cartoons come to life. They live, breathe and occupy a place in our lives…kinda like our children or our pets or our alter egos (except the last one doesn’t need feeding or bathing). Our fans know our cartoons and now we want them to know us. In other words, The Cartoonist Studio provides one-stop shopping to get personally involved with all your favorite cartoonists and cartoons.
We want to connect with you and get feedback from you. Share your thoughts about our characters, our story lines and our humor. After all, you are the ones who make our world possible…and now we have a place to welcome you to!
Please, come visit us in our studios as the photographs you see here are really our studios. Hope you don’t mind the confusion, clutter and chaos because that’s the way it is and we’re not cleaning it up just for you.
There are currently 22 cartoonists on The Cartoonist Studio, and it is very interesting to visit their virtual “studios” to see where and how they work.
… now if you’ll excuse me, I have to clean up my virtual studio.
