How I almost became a syndicated cartoonist
Great story! There's SO MUCH I didn't know about you when we worked together! 😄 I wish I had - I would have reached out more, but I never wanted to be intrusive. I figured you were always super busy. I had no idea back then that you loved to draw and write -we have so much more in common than I ever knew. Did you know that I have my own comic strip that I do as part of my own newsletter? I love the Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, and Bloom County - enough that I also always wanted to do something in that medium. ☺️ I feel, reading your emails, that I'm getting the chance to know you that I missed out on back when. I'm sorry I didn't have the courage to take better advantage of the opportunity back then.
My dream of being a syndicated cartoonist ended after reading the book, “Your Career in the Comics”. It was a stark, unflinching look into the world of syndicated cartooning as told by cartoonists. For a long time I regretted reading that book. But now I’m glad I did. I wouldn’t have cut it as a syndicated cartoonist.
Much respect to you, Chris!
