New Gig

Announcing my new art studio!

I got a gig on Fiverr. If you haven’t heard of it yet, Fiverr is a site where you can go to find freelancers of all kinds. Freelance writers, bloggers, videographers, photographers, artists, etc. On the other hand, you could also think of it as a site where you can offer all kinds of freelance work, like writing, blogging, videography, photography, and art, etc.

I think of it as an art studio because that is where my freelance cartooning business will be conducted. In a way, Fiverr is basically acting as my agent. They promote me and handle all of the businessy stuff that I would rather not have to mess with. And there are no upfront charges! I don’t owe them one red cent until I sell. That is when they get their pound of flesh. They get 20% of everything I make. Even though I think Fiverr is making a killing (they have thousands upon thousands of freelancers), I think that is a fair price for what they do. My only investment, so far, has been time.

Here is the downside…remember when I mentioned how many freelancers are using Fiverr? I said, “thousands and thousands”, and that is not an exaggeration. 13,404 to be exact. 13,404 other cartoonists in the Cartoons and Comics section. Talk about competition! Perhaps my style will just naturally stand out in a crowd. Either that, or I could come up with a gimmick to grab attention!

Wait! I got an idea! I am not even asking you to order anything (unless, of course, you wanted to, that would be okay, because maybe you need a new Facebook avatar or something), all I ask is that you visit my studio. How many clicks a certain gig gets is a determining factor in its position in the hierarchy. I am asking for your help and I thank you in advance. Please click on the image below to visit my Fiverr Gig!

P.S……My friend Joy has informed me that when she clicks on the image, it asks her to “get  account”, and well, frankly, I think that kinda sucks. I was hoping that it would take you directly to my profile. When I click it, that is what happens (maybe because I do have an account). At any rate, I think the click actually counts so keep on clicking, please! And, you know what? Maybe you should get an account. What does it cost you? A couple of minutes? You can get just about anybody to do just about anything you need! Check it out!

P.S. The End

The progression of color of the Flint River Collection design.

  1. I made a copy of the b+w version and then painted it with watercolor.
  2. Then, I cleaned it up a bit. Observe the rat’s tail and his tiny little rat-hands.
  3. Finally, after some further Photoshop color manipulation, the finished piece.

P.S……….I have closed my Patreon. I would like to thank everybody for your contributions. You are awesome! Double thanks to my best buddy, Dave Pray!

Flint River Collection

This is the finished Flint River Collection B+W design. We can’t use Flint River Outfitters because that is a real store in Georgia. Apparently, they too, have a Flint River.

I made, and used, my own type style within this design. I call it “Bob sans serif”.

Very soon, this design will be made available on T-shirts, mugs, calendars, and whatever else CafePress offers. Order now to avoid the rush!

The Play Game Update

I believe I have made the Play Game more visually appealing. Instead of just plain text, I have added the Oddbox dude, enlarged most of the text, and moved everything right smack dab in the center of the page. Unfortunately, this is not a new question. (On the other hand, you may be brand-new to this Play Game thing. If that is the case, click here to play!)  Before I make new questions, I need to make sure that what I want to do is actually possible. I am still in the testing stage. One of the main things I need to work out is, “How do I avoid having to post all questions twice?” I am in this predicament because I am using two different sites to create this game.

Stay tuned for even more stunning updates and dramatic predicaments!
