Piccolo: best & worst of being syndicated
Another insightful post by Tina’s Groove creator Rina Piccolo on the positives and negatives of being a syndicated cartoonist. On the plus side: control of one’s own schedule. On the down side: that schedule is relentless.
So here’s the truth about being syndicated: It’s hard and it never stops. You know how people have jobs – really important jobs like surgeons, military generals, and tight-rope walkers? You can bet that even those high-positioned individuals get breaks now and then – especially for extraordinary reasons like a family emergency, or some other life-freakout. For syndicated cartoonists breaks are not so common to come by.
