Today's show is brought to you by Wacom — makers of the incredible Wacom One! This week, a ComicLab listener writes in to inform Dave and Brad that neither of them "actually have a cartoonist's job." To put it lightly, the guys disagree.

But first, Brad creates a socially distant candy chute for Halloween -- 

Questions asked and topics covered...

  • Dave delivers a Zoom lecture to art students
  • What does it take to be considered a "cartoonist" in today's world?
  • Should the drawing match the writing?
  • A Clip Studio Paint boot camp in the ComicLab Discord sever
  • "I hate Kickstarter extras!"
  • Grad school or comics?
  • "I think I quit my day job too soon."

Color Note

Just a quick heads-up about the color. Since both Ed and I are in sunny San Diego (and since this convention takes weeks of prep time)the comic may aqppear in b&w for some or all of the day.

Ed’s still on the job, rest assured. And regularly-scheduled, full-color updates will begin anew next week. 🙂
