The History of

When I was just starting out as a cartoonist almost 20 years ago, I was photocopying my cartoons at Kinkos, stuffing them in envelopes with a SASE, keeping track of my submissions in a spiral notebook, and watching the mailbox like a hawk.

A few years later I thought there might be an opportunity to sell my cartoons on the relatively new World Wide Web and I built the first It was a game changer.

Instead of sending out stacks of mail, people found and emailed me. Instead of weekly photocopying, I scanned in my cartoons one time. And instead of invoicing and waiting for checks, revenue went into my bank account everyday automatically. It didn’t take long to see that this was the way to do business.

Over the years has changed and evolved in ways large and small, so with launching the new site, I thought I’d share some of the old Andertoons. Enjoy!

2001 – I built this myself using a WYSIWYG service.
2002 – Some WYSIWYG refinements.
2003 – I hired my first designer/developer.
2004 – I began working with a developer I’d continue with for almost 14 years. And the Andertoons font debuts.
2005 – Minor changes including a blog widget.
2007 – The last time I did the design myself. I should have stopped earlier.
2009 – A more modern Andertoons with a new logo.
2012 – Larger, cleaner, and a little more white space.
2015 – Larger and simpler still.

Well, that’s all of the old Andertoons.coms. Wanna see the new one?
