Review of Success in Comics seminar
This last weekend was the 2nd Success in Comics seminar put on by Tundra creator Chad Carpenter and his marketing team of one Bill Kellogg. Attendee numbers were about double from the first one held two years ago with a mix of up-and-coming cartoonists and more established cartoonist. For those who have haven’t attended this event, what sets it apart is the more focused discussion on how cartoonists from different fields were generating an income from their work. It always amazes me at how open cartoonist can be about what other businesses would consider trade-secrets. Either in their talk, or in private discussions, cartoonists were amazingly open about their contacts and their sources of income. Everyone I spoke to said they had noted a few things that they wanted to try when they got back home.
If you missed this year’s seminar, the good news is that based on feedback this year, Chad has decided to take the seminar to the East coast next year. More details will be forthcoming.
Due to travel complications and lack of internet connection, I will be posting my take-away notes from the speakers tomorrow or Wednesday. If you’re impatient, visit my Twitter feed for highlights.
