Progress is Good. I Challenge You to Challenge Me

 So let's update what has happened this week.  I, like a significant portion of the world population, have a Facebook page, Click for Facebook.  Also Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts.  Just look for Boon Cartoonist or Boondawgoggle.  Well the other day I posted on FB that I was up for a challenge and suggested to my few current followers to post an idea for a cartoon and I'll pick one I like, draw it up, and send the original out in the mail.   The "winner" was a individual that asked for "How about a cool looking groom with a cute bride with gorgeous long dark hair."

 The doodle above is what evolved from that request, and I fine tuned it to a rough, right, and finished it off in Photoshop.  The requester was very happy and I picked up a few more of the coveted "LIKES".

I'm going to do it again on FB. But I'll throw it out to you on my blog as my next "I'm up for a challenge."  offer.

Post an idea in the comments section that you'd like to see illustrated.  If I like it I'll draw it up and mail it to you as well as post it here and FB.

What else has been going on?  After my blog update about the guy who made a video to draw stupid, ugly, kindergarten drawings for a price, see Just Shoot Me! I decided to look into this YouTube thing.  I set up an account and uploaded a few old video's I'd done on my Blackberry.  So now add YouTube to the places I can be seen.  That makes 8 Internet venues and 3 websites.  E-Gads!

My channel is Boon Cartoonist.  Here is one video YouTube Boon Cartoonist.  I may have posted this in the blog previously.  What I didn't realize is video shot on my digital camera is not a format that easily uploads into a video editor, Windows Movie Maker.  Now I have to figure out how to convert them or else us my CrackBerry, which doesn't look very good.  So there will be some experimenting going on.

Also, I've started compiling my list of target markets.  I only have a few, but plan to launch my email marketing campaign this weekend or early next week.  I'm willing to stumble forward some on this to just get it going.  Oh, and I sold another greeting card.  One that hadn't sold yet.  Also I sold a hat from I sold it to me.  I wanted to see what they look like.

So I'd say it wasn't a bad week.  Progress is being made.
