United We Stand

A happy 4th to all you American readers out there.Â For you not-American readers, give us all your natural resources.Â Now.
On the whole unity and independence front, another meager tip I have for advancing in the comics world, both online and off, is a More Perfect Union.Â Forming a group of cartoonists is one of the best ideas ever.Â It's great for exchanging ideas, sharing costs and table space, and making larger recognition for everyone involved.Â I already touched briefly on the Dumbrella guys in my earlier post, but sufficed to say they've got a really great system going on. Â
I, myself, am a member of Cartoonists With Attitude, and it's done wonders for a lot of us.Â It's a great feling to know you're tabling at a show with ten people you know you're friends with and get along with.Â It's great to have a big banner representing all of you.Â It's great to have Ted Rall involved.
So, yeah.Â That's my advice for Independence day.Â Join or Die, like the first political cartoon said.Â
