Advertooning

Sptoon

Saw this the other day via Journalista (click here to read the whole thing) and it really resonated with me.

I wouldn't say Andertoons is a webcomic per se, nor am I a traditional print/syndicated cartoonist. I am an independent cartoonist (and proud of it) and although I don't sell ads on my site or blog, I gotta say this makes sense to me.

That being said, it's not as easy as just posting some cartoons and throwing some ads up, but the stigma attached to that kind of business model by some seems unfair to me.

Anyway, Willis' cartoon made sense to me.

High School Cartoons – 10/21/87

Here's another old cartoon of mine from my high school paper, The Lance.

Today's is from October 21, 1987. Here's a bit of the page it was on:

Lance 10 21 1987 Page

And here's the cartoon close up:

Lance 10 21 1987

OK, this one's gonna take some explaining.

A local high school, West, had recently banned the wearing of Spuds Mackenzie t-shirts in school, and the teen community was outraged.

So I did a reversal and had Spuds putting his students in detention for wearing West t-shirts.

All I can figure is I must have cut it too close to the deadline, because that's a lazy lazy joke, even for a high schooler.

Ugh…
