Blog 5: Some explanations about rates

As noted in several places on this site, my cartoons and images are available for resale and licensing. (I am also available to create new cartoons for you, the consumer.) I have a full collection of both general humor cartoons and technology-oriented cartoons, samples of both which appear on this site (and links to more are posted).

I have been contacted by several prospective buyers wanting to know why my fee for a technology cartoon re-use is more expensive than the fee for my cartoons on the CartoonBank, the collection of New Yorker cartoons. The CartoonBank material is general humor, where someone looking for a cartoon on a specific topic (dentists, say) would just enter that topic in the search and pick amongst the many images offered. 

When I am contacted for a technology cartoon, the client is usually looking for a specific topic - dental security, say - and often requesting a specific image. There are 2 or 3 technology cartoons that I have sold and resold multiple times as they seem to connect with viewers - and their presentations - strongly. Hence a higher reprint fee than the general humor material.

I'm always glad to discuss this. Please contact me with any questions. Except geometry - I suck at geometry.

 

Blog 3 - the (almost) daily cartoon!

Since I'm just learning this site's design features, I'm attempting to add a new skill each day. Today I added a (almost) daily cartoon, which will feature either a new creation or something I've culled from my files. I don't know if I'll archive these, so enjoy their brief moment on the world wide webs. (Maybe that will be tomorrow's skill.)

I've been impressed by the amount of messages I've received since opening the site, especially since I've done little to no publicity or marketing yet. If you're interested in sending me a question, comment or brickbat (I don't know what a brickbat is, I've just always wanted to say that) go to the "contact" line in the menu.

I hope brickbats don't hurt.

It has been 12 hours since I've made my new site live, and I've fallen a little short of the anticipated windfall. But since I'm trying to learn a new feature every day, I will try to post an image on the blog. The above image is my best-selling cartoon, so far. It is popular with IT security officials, for obvious reasons. If you are interested in purchasing the cartoon for your presentation, please contact me for my rates, which vary depending on the size and nature of your presentation.

the first post

Welcome to my new web site, and new web site blog. I had had an old site for almost 30 years, to which I had added pages and features, until it was the digital equivalent of an old shack with a couple wings and dormers and a porch added on, all painted different colors and with different styles. I could have lived with that - I DID live with that - except that I was updating it via a software that became obsolete when I purchased a new computer. Hence run to the cloud, which I did and am doing.

I am hoping to use this site to post my archives and new works, to hopefully sell work from, and get back in blogging shape. 

Wish me luck.

NOTE: I originally wrote this a year ago, when I was all set to pull an all-nighter to get my new site up. Delays ensued.
