So if you have any questions, now’s your chance! See you there!
I’ve been writing the Andertoons blog here for almost ten years now. In fact we’re closing in on 2500 posts in the near future!
But did you know Andertoons also has a fairly large presence on most other social media as well? Here’s where you can interact with me and my cartoons:
Andertoons on Facebook
Until recently I’ve been a bit of a Facebook snob. I already had some success elsewhere on social media, I didn’t trust it (I’m still not sure I do), and (this is where the snobby part comes in) it was a little too popular. I’d created an Andertoons page, but for the most part it just sat there.
Then an Andertoons fan contacted me and offered to help. We got things turned around, got links from the site point the right place in the right way, and I made an effort to update regularly. And in just a few months Andertoons’ Facebook page has tripled its number of Likes and it shows no sign of slowing.
So, if you like Andertoons, check us out on Facebook. You’ll see sketches, sneak peeks at coming art, cartoony chat and more.
Andertoons on Twitter
Twitter has long been Andertoons’ social media of choice. It’s quick, fun, snackable content, much like the cartoons themselves.
I tweet all day about all sorts of stuff: LEGO, comics, movies, and, no more than once a day, Andertoons. Occasionally I also ask for help with captions and whatnot, and my followers are always super helpful!
So, if you like Andertoons, follow us on Twitter.
Andertoons on Google+
I like Google+, it’s easy to use, and, let’s face it, Google is factoring it into its search rankings somehow. But I have to admit I don’t quite know how to use all of it yet (I’m looking at you, Hangouts).
So, if you’re on Google+ and like Andertoons, add me to your circles.
Andertoons on Pinterest
Pinterest is all kinds of fun, especially if you’re more visually based like me.
So, if you’re into Pinterest, you can check out Andertoons there too!
Andertoons on Flickr
Flickr is an old-timer in social media and still one of my favorites. I’m not a huge fan of the recent redesign (nor Yahoo’s new logo), but I can’t imagine the internet without it.
So, if you’re in Flickr, check out Andertoons!
Andertoons on GoComics
OK, GoComics isn’t necessarily what I’d call social media, but Andertoons has amassed a fair amount of daily subscribers there, and my cartoons get their share of comments each day. (Plus the GoComics folks are just really nice!)
If you’re not a member, sign up and check out all kinds of great comics and cartoons (like Andertoons). And if you are, well, adding Andertoons to your list takes just a second.
So there you go! If you’re so inclined you can like, tweet, +1, and pin Andertoons to your heart’s content. I hope to see you around!
I’m proud to announce that beginning today my Andertoons cartoons are going to be rubbing shoulders with Charlie Brown, Calvin & Hobbes, and Alice Otterloop, to name just a few, over at GoComics!
Just in case you’ve been living in a cave…
GoComics from Universal Uclick is the online comics portal for the most popular comic strips and cartoons in the world and the Web’s largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips and webcomics. GoComics content updates daily, bringing you the latest work from critically acclaimed comic strip creators, Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonists and the hottest up-and-coming talents.
I’m really excited! But maybe not as excited as Universal’s John Glynn:
“We’re delighted to have Andertoons join the GoComics family. Years ago, and for motives that still remain unclear, I happened to be wearing an oversized sombrero with a brim made of sharpened steel. Luckily I took it off just before I saw Mark’s work for the first time, which was fortunate for the other patrons of Sammy Jo’s Internet Café in Effingham, Illinois, because that darn hat would have flown off my head in a hurry (and may have hurt someone) due to the fact I was so taken with his work. That dangerous chapeau was confiscated a long while ago by the overzealous folks at the ATF, but Mark’s refreshing and funny comics are still around. And now I’m recommending to everyone to enjoy the unique look and superb comedic timing of this 21st Century humor-monger on GoComics.”
So head on over to GoComics and check out today’s Andertoons cartoon, leave a comment, and maybe send it to friend! You could also tweet it, digg it, stumble it, and fluuurng it. (OK, I made that last one up.)
Seriously, I’m thrilled to introduce Andertoons to a whole new audience, and thanks to John and everyone at GoComics for this opportunity.
