I'm handy enough with a pen but to be honest I don't have the ability to write a daily cartoon.
Well - that's not true - I'm a big fan of nonsense and silliness but there's so much of that sort of oddball meaningless stuff since the Far Side that it's nothing new.
A lot of folks make good money doing those rip off strips, but I don't get the point of doing that.
And most of them are poorly drawn - there are heaps of crappy working cartoonists out there.
Gary Larson, creator of the Far Side is not an especially good cartoonist, but his style worked for his material really well.
It doesn't work for everyone.
I am not a great writer, but I am a good editor, so if anyone has a yen to be involved in daily cartoon production but hopless with a pencil let me know.
I also apologise for the Far Side link - it's not a link to a very informative site, but a link to where you can buy his DVDs.
I hardly think Gary Larson needs me to direct more cash his way but I'm being lazy and can't be bothered digging up a more useful site.
