Cartoon market stall? They're 'avin a larf!

Most cartoonists have wondered how they can bypass traditional publication and get their work direct to a paying audience, particularly if they have ever seen rejected drawings and jokes appreciated by the general public.

PCOer Clive Goddard has joined forces with cartoon-merchandise producer Steve Willis to come up with an ingenious solution: a cartoon market stall.

They brushed up on their cheeky stallholder banter and took a spot at Oxford Castle Market this weekend, selling cartoon T-shirts, cards, mugs, key-rings, books, original art and other merchandise. Steve told the Bloghorn: “We certainly felt it was worth continuing. We’ll be at Oxford Castle Market on Saturdays for the foreseeable future.”

The pair are now set to offer free space, for a commission, to a caricaturist sitting adjacent to the stall, as there are always plenty of tourists seeing the sights of Oxford passing by.

Bloghorn wonders how long it can be before we see a cartoon market stall on EastEnders. It would cheer up Albert Square no end.

PCO and a well-travelled cartoon (ist)

Glad tidings from North Eastern Kent in the UK from whence PCOer Royston Robertson has successfully dispatched one of his cartoons all the way to the Antarctic. A distance of 10,602 miles or thereabouts. The South African National Antarctic Expedition asked if they could use a cartoon of his, which first appeared in Reader’s Digest magazine, on their team T-shirt for this year’s trip to Antarctica.

Who could turn down an offer like that? And there is more good news concerning Mr Robertson who has happily signed up to help write and look after The Bloghorn. Lapsing into third-person diary speak, Bloghorn is most delighted about this. Click R from here to see more of Royston’s work. British cartoon talent
