Learn to create awesome cartoons that grow an audience! Grab a coffee and let's go...
Do you want to make a profit off of your cartooning, but are clueless on how to get there? Do you WANT to make cartooning a career or a cool part-time gig but don’t know how? Are you wondering what you can do to build an audience, get noticed, and become known? Well…let’s talk.
As a professional cartoonist and writer for Red Bull, MAD Magazine, 21st Century Fox, greeting cards, syndication, newspapers, animation, and almost all areas of this field, I’ve learned a few things.
Cartooning is FRUSTRATING trying to figure out what direction to go, how to earn money from it, and making it happen. I’ve gotten a few gray hairs from it.
Even in art school, they taught me nothing about a few of the essential parts of making a career out of my comics: MAKING MONEY, MARKETING, BUILDING AN AUDIENCE, AND MORE! Ugh.
I know some tactics that work – and don’t work – when it comes to earning money off of cartooning. I took all of my years of experience and broke it all down. Why? I want to help you get there as quickly as possible.
Cartooning Courses Pro is a course that: Shows you if your comics are in the right direction to become profitable. And if they’re not, what to do to enhance them, so they are.
These courses help point you to where the money is at with YOUR cartooning (because all cartooning is different) RIGHT NOW with traditional routes and numerous unexpected sources — and how to contact them, profit from them, and keep them as a residual source of income (whoo-hoo!).
It provides you with a roadmap, whether you’re a beginner or intermediate cartoonist. You CAN get there with regular support from myself and others in the industry. This course is more than a roadmap; it’s like a cartooning GPS that will help you navigate to where you want to go.
If you’re starting off, think you might want to be a cartoonist OR even if you’re a professional and want to expand your network, I think you’ll fit right in.
It takes hard work and dedication on your end more than anything else. BUT, I believe, you can get there and know I can help.
I created Cartooning Courses Pro because I grew up with NO great resources on cartooning. I knew you could make a living being a cartoonist, but…how? When I was finally to the point of “making it,” newspapers were dying and the old method of just living off of syndication seemed to disappear right in front of my eyes. So, what next?
There ARE ways to make a living still. In fact, cartooning is GROWING more and there is more opportunity out there than ever before. That’s what I want to show you with these courses. There IS a way! There is help! And I’m excited to work with you.
Teaching is a passion of mine. So, that along with over a decade worth of resources, mentors and help from other professional cartoonists, I hope to make this the most educational and worthwhile investment you’ve made in your cartooning career.
It’s NOT an easy profession, but there’s a lot you can be doing (that you’re probably not). It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
However, most of what you want to do can be done, and I want to help get you to where you want to go as quickly as possible.
What is this, NOT?
CARTOONING COURSES PRO IS NOT A GET RICH CARTOONING QUICK SCHEME! It requires a TON of work, time, and dedication from you. But, with your dedication, there is a lot you CAN accomplish. So…LET’S GO! OH, and let’s have some fun while we’re at it! I try not to make these like the dull math courses you took in high school.
THIS IS NOT A DRAWING COURSE! I offer a few tips on it, but in general, it’s not a drawing course. HOWEVER, when enrolled, I’ll offer any critiques on how you can improve and what you can do to enhance your images. Mostly, I explore WRITING more than anything and cover some of that here.
8 MODULES WITH 23 LESSONS, BONUSES, LIFETIME ACCESS, SUPPORT, AND ONE-ON-ONE HELP. CHECK IT OUT…
In this first module, we figure out where you’re at and what you need to work on the most as a cartoonist so that you can eventually start cranking out material that’s going to pay off in the long run.
Here we start REALLY getting into the nitty-gritty by polishing-up your comics and getting them to a professional level.
This is one of the essential parts of running a cartooning business. You HAVE to have a good website and be active on social media.
Talent isn’t enough these days. You have to market yourself, too. This module breaks down how to thrive at your marketing and start increasing your revenue.
There are TONS of ways to start selling your comics. I break down where and how I sell my work online and off.
The custom cartoon market is HUGE these days! I show you all the essentials of how to do it right and how to make a profit.
So you’re ready to play with the big dogs, eh? Time to get your work in front of more prominent clients and markets. I show you what I do (and have done) that works.
We wrap-up everything we’ve talked about and discuss what’s next.
I have downloads of templates for pitch letters, contracts, syndicate submissions, Photoshop files for various comic panel sizes, and more! Plus, the CC PRO GOAL SETTING sheet. All included! Also, an exclusive eBook is included that is all about the power of custom cartoon marketing!
The courses are just a part of Cartooning Courses Pro. There is amazing support! We all have specific questions, situations, and roadblocks that happen, so we’ll be there for you along the way to help.
You get IMMEDIATE access to the bonuses included in Cartooning Courses Pro!
Plus, many of the courses have ADDITIONAL VIDEOS that get added regularly.
Not a happy cartoonist? If you decide at any time within 30-days that you’re not satisfied with what CC Pro has to offer, you can cancel with no questions asked.
Things change quickly these days. The courses, resources, and everything will change with it and you’ll never have to “upgrade” to get access. Once you’re in, you’re in for life!
How to find jobs, gigs, and more that become based around your work. How I find gigs that pay thousands of dollars a month. Getting recruiters to find YOU. Getting your foot in the door (if you’re new with cartooning). Contracting gigs or hired jobs? What’s best?
As Cartooning Courses is developed, new paid courses will be coming on drawing, animation, and more! You’ll have instant, free access to them for life. No new purchases will be necessary.
If you’re a beginner, intermediate, or professional cartoonist, the answer is YES. We’re all at different levels. No matter WHERE you’re at, the information included will help you now — or down the road — when you’re ready to start profiting off of your cartooning.
I have a non-B.S. approach to things, and I like to tell it like it is. I put all of what I’ve done in my career on the table and base my information on that. More than anything, becoming good at anything takes hard work from you.
I can’t guarantee anything. I won’t promise you you’ll become a professional cartoonist. That wouldn’t be realistic, and everyone has a different journey. BUT, I will do everything in my power to help get you there. I believe you can get to where you want to go, and it’s up to YOU to do that. This course is here to help you along the way.
You’re ready for this. You’ve been waiting your entire life. Get your pens ready.
I'm interested in cartooning, but can't draw good. Does this course help?
Drawing is one of those skills that takes TIME and PRACTICE. This course doesn’t teach you how to draw, but I do talk about developing your own style, creating comics that work best and deciding what direction to go with cartooning. That being said, these days, you really don’t need to draw THAT great to be a successful cartoonist. There are cartoons doing quite well that are practically stick figures. Writing is a bigger part of cartooning and I talk about that and how you can improve and grow. If you want to draw good, I do have some resources in the course and down the line, where you’re at the level you want to be. This course can definitely be beneficial.
Can I just quit my day job with this course and become a full-time cartoonist?
Becoming a full-time cartoonist is NOT easy and NOT recommended unless you’re pretty sure you’ll have financial stability. With what you learn in this course, hopefully you can get to that point where you feel like making the leap. We all have different skillsets — which includes business and other things needed to “make it” — so, I can’t guarantee anything for sure. We all have a different journey in life. BUT, I know that the help in this course can help you get there, if that’s where you want to go. I believe almost anything is possible, so this course can definitely give you an advantage.
Realistically, how much can I expect to make off of this course?
This is going to vary with everyone (I think that’s pretty obvious). We all have different skillsets and levels with where we’re at. The good news? LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP! So, even if you’re just now learning to draw, these courses will come in handy eventually when it comes time to get your work out there and eventually earning a profit. Now to the nitty-gritty… My goal is that you DEFINITELY make more than you’ve invested in these courses relatively quickly. As long as you put in the work, I think you’ll get your investment and then some with these tactics. Beyond that, I teach about residual income, clients, publishing and all kinds of topics that can bring in quite a bit of money over the longterm. Again, this will vary for EVERYONE and will depend on areas you want to focus on most. Luckily, with the support and dedication I have to helping you get there, I’ll answer this question by saying the skies the limit! Cartooning has unlimited potential. It’s no cake walk and it requires a lot of practice, work and things change constantly. My mantra is: If someone else is doing it, more than likely, so can I. So as long as someone else is earning income in an area of cartooning, I believe you can, too.
