Determination – even cats have it!(In bucket loads!)

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” ~ Calvin Coolidge

It reminds me of my cat….it has determination

Solar eclipse cartoon for Friday 20 March 2015

On Friday 20 March 2015(Today!), a solar eclipse was visible in the UK (and parts of Europe, parts of Asia and Africa). To celebrate the eclipse I created this solar eclipse cartoon….solar eclipse cartoon, cartoon of the solar eclipse - one guy running off scared while another pulls him back.

Copyright Infringement On Graphics – Too Many Horror Stories!

Copyright Infringement Warning!

for Business Owners, Online Marketers, Website Owners, Developers, Bloggers and Graphic Designers

I’m not a lawyer and never will be. However, I can tell you that if you’ve been carelessly using graphics from around the Internet, you may be at risk of copyright infringement. It’s not a great idea to just copy and paste an image you like onto your website or blog! (In fact I had someone use one of my cartoons and then had painstakingly Photoshopped my copyright watermark out of it, not even a great job! They could have purchased the same cartoon for a few dollars.)

Over the years I’ve heard too many horror stories of lawsuits, court judgements and settlements (basically out-of-court “extortion fees”) being charged to website owners for seemingly minor copyright violations on graphics used on their sites..

As a freelance cartoonist and Internet Publisher, I totally understand how important it is to have good graphics for your website or blog.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find high-quality graphics that are fully legal, yet don’t cost an arm and a leg for licensing them.

Today we’ve found the perfect solution for you…my main site:

But I warn you, it’s going to be VERY hard to believe how massive this solution is and how super-inexpensive it is to have funny, motivational and inspiring cartoons on your blog or website.
