Trashy Encounters

One of the cartoons from my next ebook 'More Cartoons That Will Send Me Straight To Hell'. Granted, this one by itself would probably not cause me as much grief in the afterlife as would others.

NCS Chapter ad

I put together the chapter ad again this year. It's like a puzzle trying to see how you can fit all these examples together into some kind of cohesive whole. It's fun and it gives us all a little publicity. Enjoy. Dan

Indie Aisle

A new selling channel I found with some interesting twists. Read online and an instant conversion to epub mobi and pdf. However the pdfs are not very good: they're all dithering like crazy. The free sample is squashed and the read online was that way too. Hopefully they will fix that. ebook

Final cover art

Here's the final version of the cover for book two. Looks lots better I think. The first chapter is laid out, styled and ready to assemble the other chapters with the same stylesheet. Won't be long now fans! This book will be a quantum leap in design and production from the first and will be the model for many future books by me and other cartoonists who contract with me for ebooks. I'm very excited about this new avenue for cartoonists who will gain the ability to publish their work and bring it to market without the barriers of the old model for publishing. It's a new dawn guys and girls and in it the publishers are screwed and we artists and illustrators are "golden". So says Stephen Roxburgh in the March/April 2012 issue of the Horn Book.

The Affair

America is warming back up to the Prez again. Could be that the GOP noms are just too icky for all but the dead-enders, which of course they are but maybe it's also because the effects of his term are finally starting to produce good results. Perhaps not momentous gains but at least the free fall has stopped which he inherited from the previous bunch of losers. It's nice to find some love after getting screwed for so long. Oh wait, now they want to rape us with ultra-sound wands. What the hell is their fucking problem?
