Kevin Frank was recently spotlighted in the New York Times and it has raised his feature’s profile (but perhaps not the number of papers subscribing). This site has a story on the outcome of that exposure.
â??Itâ??s a big deal to be published in that newspaper,â? he said. â??Iâ??m still shocked. And, itâ??s increased the hits on my Web site, too.â?
â??Newspapers are looking for â??niche marketsâ?? now; cartoons that appeal to certain readers, so I hope I have a shot at it being picked up by a big paper. Itâ??s really about being Canadian and, as I am a Christian, the element of faith is there, too.â?
Mr. Frank said that while he approaches his work as a full-time career, he knows how difficult it is to â??make the big time.â?
â??Iâ??m really happy the Times published the strip and did a story about me, and although it might take awhile to be picked up by a big paper, I know Iâ??ve given it my best shot.â?
