SYAC - The Slippery Slope by TomPreston SYAC - The Slippery Slope by TomPreston
Copyright 2012 Andrew Dobson
Read the latest “So, You’re A Cartoonist” at the following [link]

Doing fanart is both rewarding and frustrating. It's rewarding because it's a great way to draw in new fans and viewers by showing them something they're familiar with.

It's frustrating because your original characters and series can often get overlooked or be not as popular as a fanart piece you produced in 10 minutes. I've seen some really talented artists fall down that slippery slope and struggle to get back up again.

POSTERS!

New SYAC poster now available for pre-orders!

Personally I prefer to do original works because I find it more fun than doing fan art but I practiced with adventure time recently

This pretty much sums up my views on fan art No, I disagree!

If you're wanting to get back up again, you better get a Rhyhorn. And also, I do believe it's called a  "hill", Andy.
