Cartooning Advice

Tips, articles, tutorials and other cartooning advice. I’m just getting started so please check back as I get more information on cartooning added to the website.

I’ve been drawing cartoon logos, clip art, greeting cards and funny gag cartoons for over a decade online. I’ve sold hundreds of cartoon images and made a full time business out of my creations. I am now going to show you how you can make money with cartoons whether you want to do it online or offline.

I can give you insights into selling cartoons to magazines, trying to get syndicated, writing funny material and making money with cartoon imprinted merchandise. Things are just getting started so please be patient as I start writing new articles and filming some fun videos.

In the meantime read some of the cartooning articles below…

Hi Curtis.

My name is Ayad. I am from Pakistan.

I stumbled across your site because I am trying to make my first website and was looking to have a cartoon logo of a crocodile designed.
Or more to the point, I was looking to design it myself with some online program/advice.

I read through your story which you have so generously shared and found it very inspirational. That is exactly what I want to do: be paid to do what I love.

I would love to stay in touch as I am sure I could benefit from your online experience. I would also eventually like my website to make money and would appreciate any advice you could give me. Incidentally it is to be a movie review website.

Please reply back as I would really like to keep in touch.

Regards,

Ayad

Hi Ayad,

Great to hear from you! The best way to do a cartoon logo is to draw it on paper as good as you can and then scan it into a program like Photoshop. From there you can clean it up, color it and save it as a web safe file. Send me an email with ant other questions. curtis@curtoons.com

Hi Curtis! I really enjoy visiting your sites and reading your cartooning tips. I may not be at the same level as your creativity, but you inspire me to do better. On your bio page, there is a photo of yourself drawing. Do you use a light table to clean up your drawings?

Hey Doug, thanks for dropping by! I’ve been on a hiatus for a long period and have not been doing much cartooning lately. I do use a small light box, it’s great for cleaning up and making changes on a drawing. I use it to overlay multiple drawings to create one. Good luck with the career! I’ll check out your website.
