Comics Seminar to be Held in Las Vegas February 25th & 26th

How to make money with comics

Chad Carpenter, the cartoonist behind the popular newspaper comic strip Tundra, and Bill Kellogg, Tundra’s marketing director who has managed to get Tundra in over 500 newspapers in less than six years, are hosting a seminar in Las Vegas on how to make money with comics. They hosted this seminar for the first time just over a year ago and it went over extremely well. Now, due to popular request, and the fact that they are from Alaska and it gets really cold there in February, they are going to do it again.

This is a “must-attend” event for anyone who would like to learn how to make more money with comics. The seminar takes place in Las Vegas this February 25th & 26th at the Tuscany Hotel & Casino and is open to amateur and syndicated cartoonists alike. There will be fourteen speakers over two days, sharing their knowledge on how to make money in different areas of cartooning. Topics include: How to get syndicated, self-syndicating, web comics, producing & marketing products, licensing, animation, building a Facebook following, and much more. There will be social get-togethers each night too with free beer, wine and snacks so attendees will have plenty of time to talk one-on-one with the speakers and other guests.

This Years’ speakers are:

  • Chad Carpenter & Bill Kellogg – (Tundra Comics)
  • Jack Newcombe – (President of Creator’s Syndicate)
  • Tom Gammill – (The Simpsons)
