I posted about this at my other blog, but I think it bears repeating here.
One of my comics recently popped up in the Reader’s Digest, so be sure to dash out and buy the April Issue (I’m serious – drop whatever you’re doing and go buy one right now… this is not a joke). They had a contest going for America’s Next Great Cartoonist, and I was one of the second-prize winners, earning $500 and a spot in the magazine.
The moral to this story, I suppose, is that the key to success in any endeavor is scantily-clad snails. Whatever the case, I’m totally going to let this go to my head, if that’s what you’re wondering. I AM
AMERICA’S NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST – NAY, THE NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST OF THE WORLD. I DECLARE MYSELF LORD OF THE SNAILS. I SHALL EVER-SO-SLOWLY TAKE OVER THE WORLD, ONE SNAIL COMIC AT A TIME! THE WORLD WILL HIDE IN ITS SHELL AS I OOZE MY WAY TO GLOBAL DOMINATION! BOW TO ME, FOOLS! BOW TO YOUR MOLLUSK MASTER! (I think I’m taking this rather well, don’t you?) Anyway, check out all of my Nonsense Island
