What Gives?

13 Jun

Q:  Hey, Nate.  I thought you mentioned awhile back you were going to be blogging more?  What the…what happened?  They’re not posted on here often.  What gives?

A:  I don’t know.

Q:  Did someone really ask that question?

A:  No.  I actually made that question up as an intro to a blog post.

I’ve been busy.  Period.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…that’s always my excuse.  But honestly, it’s been jammed-packed around here with Ella (my seven-month old), new clients and the relaunch of BizComics.  Add in the normal cartoons and, well, you have yourself a busy sandwich.

So, it is what it is.  But who reads blogs these days anyhow?

Listen, how about this:  I’ll fill you in to what all I’ve been doing that’s been keeping me busy.  Cool?

I mentioned the above.  And I’ll keep this to professional stuff.  If you’re a parent (or even if not) you know about having a young one at home.  Ella has been fantastic – enough said.  I won’t get into details.  But no, really – extraordinary being a parent it is.  I’ll talk about that some other time (and I actually already have if you scroll some of these here archives).

Let’s keep this post about cartooning.

Some really great new clients have come seeking cartoons – and I’m here to provide the best ones possible.

BizComics was just relaunched and let me just say that I’m 100% thrilled with the direction it’s going.

We launched a year ago to really no fanfare.  Why?  It just wasn’t great at that time.  Yes, we had a page explaining what we do and this and that and blah, blah, blah.  But, it wasn’t very interesting (kind of like many of my blog posts).

Now though, with a weekly cartoon/blog and quarterly graphic novel, Max Impact, we’ve caught the attention of some clients.  And I’m really happy with what is coming with them – and many more – soon.  I am invested fully into everything we’re doing over there and really believe in it.  And our clients?  It’s all about them.  Having them feature cartoons is very rewarding to me.  And I get to help create them.  What’s better than that?  (Well, parenthood is, but still….)

My regular work as well has been going good.  I have some housekeeping to do, but Nate Fakes Cartoons website is being updated regularly with new comics to license out and a few more bells and whistles.  Soon I hope to have a portfolio section, but no huge hurry.  It’ll all get pulled together eventually.

And, of course, I continue writing and drawing my daily cartoons that appear in newspapers and online.  They are also sent to my subscribers everyday via my email service.  That’s a lot of cartoons per year (and emails).

Plus, when you add in pizza night here at the Fakes household, it makes for a busy week (and often times heartburn).

Of course, I would blog everyday, but…

Yeah.

Maybe in a perfect world.  How does one hire a ghost writer?  Don’t they, like, write for other people? I’m not too sure (I never Googled “ghost writer”).  Hey, that might help though.

At any rate, I’m writing now, write?  Er – right?

Q:  Are you going to keep up writing more?

A:  Maybe.

Q:  When is your next blog post going to be?

A:  I don’t know.

Q:  Is this the end of this particular blog post?

A:  Yes.
