As I mentioned earlier, Draw Something is a new app that has become quite popular – one of the most played apps in the iTunes App Store (there is an Android version). Think of it as Pictionary with a friend on a phone (or an iPad). I asked a few notable cartoonists to play the [...]
Starting tomorrow, I’m kicking off a game here on The Daily Cartoonist. I’m sure many of you have heard of the app Draw Something (free and paid versions of iPad/iPhone and Android devices). Think of it as Pictionary on your phone with a friend. According to one source it took AOL nine years to acquire [...]
To everyone celebrating Christmas (or the December holiday of your choosing), I wish you all a happy holiday. Stay safe and I’ll see you back here on January 3rd unless breaking news happens. To send you all off, here is a caption contest using my holiday card for this year. Put your best caption in [...]
Sorry, all. Have a funeral in my extended family that I am attending today. Hope you’re Thanksgiving weekend was great. I’ll be back tomorrow. UPDATE: Looks like I have a few minutes before I head out of town, so I’ve thrown a couple of stories up.
Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. readers. Happy Thursday for everyone else I guess. I’m taking the weekend off. I’ll see you all back here on Monday unless something big breaks.
As many of you are aware last week I ran my annual donation drive with a goal of raising the equivalent of $7.25 (minimum wage) for the work I do here on the blog. When the dust had settled my readers donated the equivalent of $4.77. A bit shy of the goal, but it surpassed [...]
A big thanks to those who donated yesterday (see below). Tyson Cole, creator of the college cartoon The Deep End Scott Nickel, MAD cartoonist and creator of EEK! Jerry Scott, co-creator of Zits and Baby Blues Howard Tayler, creator of Schlock Mercenary Tom Heintjes, Editor of Hogan Magazine Kelly Ferguson, creator of Basket Case Comix [...]
Another big thanks to everyone that donated yesterday. Typically each ensuing day of the drive the donations drop, but yesterday the drop wasn’t as big as I expected. I’ve also updated the “check” to reflect yesterday’s giving. The equivalent compensation is now $2.45/hr (I over-reported yesterday’s as $1.45 but it should have been $1.33). Here [...]
Yesterday I kicked off the annual donation drive with the goal to raising the equivalent of a minimum wage compensation ($7.25/hr). At the end of the yesterday I tallied it up, divided by the estimated number of hours per year and came up with $1.45/hour. Which isn’t bad as that is approximately 20% of the [...]
I skipped the donation drive last year. I spent quite a lot of time reflecting if the blog was the best use of my time. Quite honestly for several weeks I considered walking away – even going as far as researching how to sell the blog and writing a draft announcing that it was going [...]
Just a quick announcement. My wife reminded my last night that The Daily Cartoonist turned 6 years old. The date’s a bit fuzzy. The first blog post was on October 5 – but that was on a free blogging account on Blogger. I purchased the domain on the 14th with the first news story soon [...]
I’m changing hosting environments. If you’re seeing this message, you’re on the old server and in the next couple of hours/days when you come back, you’ll be on the new server. I should note that any comments left after 9:45 pm (MST) on this older server will not be updated on the new. I’m looking [...]
I’ve dropped hints here and there that major changes were afoot here at The Daily Cartoonist. I want to take this opportunity to communicate what changes are coming and why. I created the blog five years ago as a means of better understanding where comics were heading – more specifically syndicated comic strips and editorial [...]
