Cartoons For Writing Professionals

Cartoons writers may need can easily be found in any of the more than sixty separate web catalogs made available for easy purchase and downloading. I was just contacted by an author in San Diego requesting reprint rights to one of my law cartoons for a book she’s working on. I’ve been getting requests for specific cartoons for reprinting in small book projects which got me to thinking how I can reiterate the value of using cartoons in their writing projects.

I think many authors are so busy with the actual writing process in their minds, that they rarely take time to investigate the potential ease with which having a creative cartoonist assist in helping them get their point(s) across.

I just wrote this brief tome for those writers, professors and authors who may find the information useful.

A consultant may be preparing that special Powerpoint presentation in which a clever cartoon is used for infusing some humor and laughter into an otherwise text laden presentation.

Cartoons can also be customized to use for your book publishing project where a custom cartoon can be used in each chapter heading of your story or writing project.

When a reader begins digesting your story or content, a specific cartoon image that is created, will help familiarize the reader to each chapter’s content or focus.

Cartoons can guarantee steady traffic and ensure a devoted following! I was recently contacted by the editor of an electronic newsletter that was emailed to his subscribers each month.

He asked about using my work in each issue and I told him he could choose any specific image from any of the various catalogs I make available and I quoted him a licensing fee for using each cartoon to which he agreed.

In his response, he wanted several and I sized them to his preferred column width in his newsletter’s template and attached the cartoons in my follow-up email and it was a simple transaction.

If you have a newsletter, just advise your number of recipients or what the circulation of your newspaper or digital newsletter is. This will assist in providing you with a reasonable licensing fee based on your circulation.
