Blank Label Comics is hosting a webcomic telethon to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina. It will be held the week of Sept. 12 at www.webcomictelethon.com. Actual dates are to be announced later.
Brad Guigar, who has organized previous webcomics telethons benefitting MDA (http://mda.altbrand.com/01mda.shtml), is organizing the event.
All of the revenue generated from site advertising, donations, and proceeds from merchandise bought through the site will be donated to the Red Cross to help in disaster relief.
The site will be updated several times during the course of the telethon with new comics, encouraging readers to come back often to see the new strips and donate money when their favorites are displayed.
If you’d like to participate, please do the following:
(1) Contact Brad Guigar at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him you will be participating. This will help us plan the event.
(2) Do a comic. Now. It doesn’t have to be about hurricanes or disasters or the importance of charity… but those themes are appreciated. The final should be no wider than 600 pixels. Any depth is fine. Do not include a large title, in the image… that will be included in a text line under your comic, linked back to your site.
(3) Send your comic to email@example.com. GIF, PNG and JPEG are all acceptable formats. In your e-mail, include your name(s), the title of your strip, and your URL.
Two veteran webcartoonists have joined forces with Blank Label Comics — a recently formed co-op of independent cartoonists.
Dave Kellett, creator of Sheldon, and Greg Dean, creator of Real Life, bring a total of twelve years of webcomics experience to the group. Each will play key roles in the group’s ongoing development.
Blank Label Comics proudly announces a new approach to self-publishing for cartoonists. Blank Label is a cooperative group of cartoonists who are helping one another succeed as independents.
These six cartoonists, previously hosted at Keenspot, are banding together for cross-promotion and advertising. Each is using his proficiency in a particular aspect of the cartooning business to help the others — who are doing the same in return.
