It’s been an ugly few years for anybody working as a newspaper cartoonist. Every few months, another one throws in the towel. I myself have lost nearly 70% of my print and web clientele, but am working diligently to make up for it through various avenues.
Every successful cartoonist knows they’d be nothing without their readers. Nowadays, that special relationship between cartoonist and reader is more crucial than ever!
I believe there are enough of you out there reading who are willing to support the work I’ve been doing over the years by tossing some scratch into my tip cup (located at right side of page). Any amount is fine. $5 is as good as $5000. Just the fact that you’ve checked in sez, ” Hey, keep doing what you’re doing!” And everyone who donates gets their name up on the home page (til they get knocked off by the next few!)
Your contribution guarantees that I will continue to bring you the political , social, racial, and funny, unfiltered and without a censor!
What does your donation go toward?
$5-pays for a pad of smooth archival bristol paper (or a beer)
$10- pays for a six-pack of Micron Pigment markers (or a pastrami sandwich)
$25-pays for shipping another box of books from my publisher
$50-pays for a week’s rental of the studio I draw in
$250-pays for a table at a convention
$1000-pays for a month of medical insurance (or a serious bender)
