limited number of

Consulting / Public Speaking
an professional independent cartoonist since 2000, I can speak to a
wide range of topics -- from generating creative ideas to business
issues that effect independent artists working on the Web.
I have written one book on general cartooning, "The Everything Cartooning Book" and I co-wrote the "How to Make Webcomics" book (now in its fourth printing). I've updated my daily Web site of tips, tutorials and advice for cartoonists, Webcomics.com, since 2009.
importantly, I can handle a microphone well. My discussions are lively,
entertaining and informative -- as any of my appearances on the podcast
I co-hosted, Webcomics Weekly, can prove.
Heck, I've even done stand-up comedy.
