Should I Be a Specific Type of Cartoonist?

Cartain types of cartooning cartooning courses.

“I’m a gag cartoonist. Can I be a graphic novelist, too?”

“I specialize in caricatures. What if I want to create a strip. Should I?”

“Will my reputation be okay if I try a new type of medium with cartooning?”

The questions we can ask ourselves when it comes to being a cartoonist can get quite complicated.

Have you ever wondered what would happen to your image as a cartoonist if you one day decide to switch things up?

Let’s say you have a successful non-fiction graphic novel, but you decide you want to write funny greeting cards. Will people take you seriously as a graphic novelist then?

I hope you enjoy!
