The third annual Success in Comics seminar was held at the weekend in Maryland in the US. Despite the name, it covers all areas of cartooning and cartoon illustration and focuses on how freelancers can make their business grow.
Alan Gardner of The Daily Cartoonist website attended and took notes from each speaker. His write-ups at the site, from the likes of Mad magazine’s Tom Richmond and the gag cartoonist Mark Anderson, provide a wealth of tips and advice for cartoonists. You can see the full list of reports here. Gardner also live-tweeted the event: #successcomics
Success in Comics is organised by Chad Carpenter, creator the self-syndicated cartoon Tundra, above, and his marketing/sales manager Bill Kellogg.
