Thoughts On Making Gag Cartoons

Another artist wrote to ask me for some tips on writing gags. While I feel like I still have a lot of room for growth in that area, that didn’t stop me from making a video with a few thoughts.

This is Part 1, where I share general thoughts about the importance of good writing. In Part 2 I share some tips and techniques for coming up with ideas. Part 2 is only available for Patreon backers.

Also, here are a couple books on writing comedy that have helped me, with Amazon Links. (Full disclosure: If you click one of the links and then buy something – anything – from Amazon, they will cut me a tiny slice of the sale, at no extra cost to you. It’s another way you can support my webcomic work):

I’m Kickstarting a book of Sketchbook Silliness cartoons

People seem to like my Sketchbook Silliness cartoons. A few have gone mildly viral, I’ve gained thousands of followers on social media, and a few have been featured on the front pages of sites like 9gag and Imgur. Now that I’ve got over 100 cartoons under my belt I thought it was time for a book!

I’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign. Over 100 gag cartoons, 9×6″, softcover. Check it out!

Also, thanks to all of you who have read and shared my cartoons. It means a lot! Anything you can do to help spread the word would be deeply appreciated!
