I have some good news to share.
Yesterday I got message from John Glynn, editor of Universal Press Syndicate/Universal Uclick, offering me an online syndication deal. (This was on the heels of a disappointing rejection I received the day before from another syndicate.) I really appreciated the offer and said yes.
Later this summer or in early fall, my single panel cartoons will be on Universal Uclick’s site GoComics!
I plan to post many of my old single panels and of course will be creating a bunch of new material. I’ll post an announcement when the launch date is confirmed.
I was recently interviewed by David Paccia for his Cartoonist Survey on his blog, David Wasting Paper. Over the past several months, David has interviewed more than 100 cartoonists, asking each one the same set of questions (about the favorite drawing tools, work environment, art background, etc.). You can read my answers to his questions here. Thanks David. I’m flattered to be a part of the survey.
If you’re into the nuts and bolts of cartooning, check out the archives on David’s site. Fun read.
This past Tuesday, Sarah mentioned Metzger Cartoons Christmas cards on the Sarah and Vinnie Morning Show (Alice 97.3 FM). Kudos to Sarah for having such excellent taste. Thanks for the plug.
You can listen to it here – she starts talking about it at the 2-minute mark.
The cartoonist collective I belong to, Tall Tale Features, is growing! We recently added two members to our group: Irma Eriksson (creator of “Imy”) and Norm Feuti (creator of “Gill.”) If the name Norm Feuti sounds familiar, you might know his syndicated strip, “Retail.”) We are very happy to have these two talented people in our group. Check out their strips!
