Some inspiration for other cartoonists out there.
Here's a link to a blog by cartoonist Phil McAndrew. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK.
It's a nice simple insightful post about being a freelance cartoonist "Super Obvious Secrets That I Wish They'd Teach In Art School"
It's a great little piece of inspiration and insight into a fellow cartoonist's working philosophy.
Go read that then get your sketch book out and get drawing!

Cool TAIS event tonight special guests John Porcellino and Matt den Boer
If you are in Toronto tonight, Wed May 4th, i highly recommend checking out this month's TAIS INCUBATOR. Illustrator John Porcellino and animator Matt den Boer will be there to give a short presentation on their new project "the Next Day". It's a graphic novel and online interactive animated documentary "constructed from intimate interviews with survivors of near-fatal suicide attempts."
They'll be talking about their collaborative process and the challenges of animating Procellino's illustrations and creating the interactive animations. It will be a very interesting incubator this month indeed.
(TAIS holds an animation incubator the first wed of each month if you are interested in attending.)
So check it out!
