I have created a YouTube channel.
This is the project I’ve been working on for a while. It’s totally stressed me out as learning new stuff, especially techy kind of stuff, is hard for me. But, I figured it all out today. I guess this means I’m going to have to actually buy the software after my trial version expires.
Figuring out the YouTube monetary thing has been harder than learning how to make the video. One thing at a time. I’m glad to have gotten this far.
What is this channel? It’s a companion piece to the cartoons, much like the columns. I plan to create a time-lapse video of every cartoon. I’ll add a voiceover where I discuss creating the cartoon and bitch about current events. They will not run longer than fifteen minutes.
I doubt this makes me a YouTube star but I think cartoon geeks will like it. I promise it will improve over time as I become more comfortable creating these things and doing the voiceover. Maybe hearing my voice will make people really dislike me. We’ll see.
The days of cartoonists just drawing a cartoon and sending it to their page and syndicate are over. We have to learn new things. It’s why I started self-syndicating, created my own website, write a daily column, and now create videos. Most cartoonists haven’t figured out that they shouldn’t share images of their cartoons instead of links. Other cartoonists have created time-lapse videos before, but nobody’s done it with a YouTube channel or on a daily basis. I’m a trendsetter, baby.
I think other cartoonists will copy this idea, and a few will probably do it better. I kinda look forward to seeing that.
Please subscribe to my channel. Share it with friends, family, enemies, etc.
