Do you think there's a market for my wacky cartoons?
Are they too weird? Are the accompanying hubs too wordy? Do you like animals more? or people? Do you get the jokes?
I sure do wish that I could make cartoons like those...part critter and part almost human! Gus:-)))
I see just from the one here you have a good talent at it.
Over the next week or so I'm going to be working on...something new. I honestly have no idea how well it'll do but, once I get everything in line, I might get back with you on doing some creative stuff...if you're willing, of course.
We'll see then. For now, just be on the lookout for a business article I'll be posting soon.
...Oh, and never stop doing the wonderful cartoons you make!
I have always been a fan of your wonderful art and writings from the first time I stepped into HubPages. I do think your cartoonship is worthy of artistic and creative value. I always vote up for these wonderful hubs.
You must know, that I do.........
While I, personally, do not " appreciate" every single one.........
Rick, do what you do...............there is a market.
As there is a market for fruit, not everyone will buy banannas.
If you've noticed a lot of comic strips are written by pairs of artists - one produces the physical art, which does require a deft sense of visual humor and the other does the verbal humor, which for many of us is a separate skill and one we may or may not possess. I, for instance, get ideas for comic treatments and can do some rudimentary drawing, but my drawing isn't funny. Johnny Hart and
You can't just tack talking balloons over stick figures and convey the humor. Some people manage it with quite elementary drawing skills, but they have that gift of visual humor, even with crudely drawn characters.
Charles Schulz's characters were not highly detailed and he had practically no scenery to speak of. Technically, Rick, you're a better physical artist than Schulz was in many respects. Your characters have a nuance to them that's hard to capture for us merely mortal scribblers.
If I could suggest a career track for you, I would recommend finding a wordsmith - someone who has a gift for creating the taglines.
Your cartoon above, for instance, could read, "Uh, Ref? How come there's two of 'em now?"
"Hey, Billy, I'm really rethinking this whole taking-Taibo-with-my-ex-wife thing."
Dilbert's creator, Scott Adams gets tons of ideas from his fans through his busy e-mail correspondence.
You've definitely got skills in the drawing department. Find a partner to help you make your stuff screamingly funny and you'll be set.
Hey, TWayne: Check out some of my Little-Known Santas (No. 1 through 24) and let me know if I've got any of that 'screamingly funny' goin' on . . . .
LOL..I feel like that all the time! The difference is i use a wall to bang my head against! It's very...APE-propriate considering the caricature of the 'civilization' we live in!
I saw your question here and went to check out your hubs. You definitely have great talent in cartoon drawing. I will be thrilled if I could draw as good as you do. When you have time, create a comic book/strip and let your Hubfans here be the judge. I am sure you'll create buzz here.
