The Daily Cartoonist is on hiatus

Perhaps you’ve noticed the site has not been updated for awhile now. I certainly didn’t intend to go this long without mentioning something, but since several individuals have contacted me asking if I was okay or what was going on with the blog, I’m long overdue for some level of public explanation. The Daily Cartoonist […]

The Daily Cartoonist turns 10 years old

Last week The Daily Cartoonist hit the 10 year mark. I started the blog as an experiment in 2005 to better understand what was going on in the comic industry. I didn’t expect the blog to take off as quickly or become as popular as it did. At the height of its popularity it was […]

On family vacation

While everyone on the planet will be at San Diego Comic-Con for the rest of the week, I’m taking the kids to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. It’s just me, five teenagers (not all my own) and a lot of coffee for the next four days. I’ll be back here Monday. Alan

Update on progress for Daily Cartoonist make over

As many of you know, last November I ran a successful Indiegogo fundraiser to support my efforts with the blog and I help fulfil several lofty goals around a major redesign of the blog both visually and with the content. It’s been awhile, since the topic has come up, so I thought I’d offer an […]

A nice week in Vermont, but heading home

My apologies for the lack of updates this week. I’m traveling for work and it would seem blogging would be easier when I travel – especially to places like Vermont. It’s freezing cold outside – not much to do except stay inside and try to keep warm. But Vermont turned out to be a great […]

As I usually do, I’m taking the last week of the year off for the holidays. I’ll be back at the helm January 2. To each of you, I wish you happy holidays and new year! –Alan

And we’re back

My apologies for the prolonged downtime over the weekend and earlier this week. The blog began having issues last Thursday and became more pronounced Friday and into the weekend. The site couldn’t stay up for more than 15 minutes. Support from my hosting company was underwhelming and frankly useless. I spent far too much time […]

Big thanks to awesome people who made Fund The Daily Cartoonist possible

I’m wrapping up the shipping of the various perks that were offered by some very generous individuals and companies. I’d like to take a moment and recognize them for their generosity. I approached a few individuals personally but the majority came to me offering their help. In alphabetical order, I give huge thanks to… Abrams […]

Happy Thanksgiving to U.S. readers; Happy Thursday to the rest of you

Today in the US is the day we pause to give thanks for our blessings, eat too much food; take naps, watch a parade, a movie, football game and plot out our Black Friday shopping (which may or may not actually start on Thursday this year). For the rest of you, it’s a Thursday. As […]

A BIG, BIG thanks to everyone!

I went to bed last night $30 shy of $8,000 (I’m also counting a $150 analog donation that came in the mail) in this year’s Fund The Daily Cartoonist drive. Somewhere in the last 30 minutes another donation came in that pushed the total above $8,000. Considering that this one campaign total surpasses all of […]

Introducing the FundTDC Bonus Perk: The Best of Alan’s personal cartoons

You might not know that I was an editorial cartoonist for several years and developed a comic strip (two actually). When the triplets came, I put away my pen and ink and went into the corporate world for the benefit of a steady salary. I still do occasional cartoons and illustrations, but most of my […]

Last THREE days of FundTDC! Have you donated?

We are in the last three days of the campaign to support The Daily Cartoonist. If you’re reading this, it’s because you read the blog. It might be “free” to you, but it’s not free to produce. There’s the hosting costs, my time and energies – both in posting news and links and behind the […]

#fundTDC: New perks and incentives for week two

Over the weekend, I was offered the opportunity to add an original Jeff MacNelly Shoe comic strip as an incentive. I thought I had put the donation value high, but apparently not too high – it was claimed within an hour. I’m jealous of the person who claimed it, but immensely happy – it’s going […]
