Additionally, you agree to take all steps necessary to prevent any third party from duplicating or distributing any Content. Usage of images that would be defamatory, offensive, pornographic, generally defamation of character, or otherwise unlawful uses of images are expressly prohibited. Use of trademarks is denied. The use of Cartoon Motivator images in whole or in part without written permission for multiple resale in the form of stock proofs, engravings, film, mats, printing, digitized images, etc. is expressly denied.
Do you purchase images from outside sources?
I currently draw all the cartoons myself but I’m happy to look at ideas that I feel would be of interest to my readers/clients. I would probably work out some sort of percentage split as opposed to outright purchase. I’m hoping to set up a tracking system soon. So keep tuned!
What happens after I purchase a cartoon? Where do I get the high resolution version?
The cartoons will be delivered to your email address immediately after purchase! You will receive the high-quality image files as soon as your order is completed! You’ll receive a download link.(The image will be of jpeg format, these image formats are industry standard and will suit all of your possible needs.)
Do you take the copyright symbol off of the cartoon I purchase?
Yes, the cartoon you purchase won’t have the copyright symbol on it.
Can we use the cartoons on your web site for free?
Cartooning is a profession. It is my living. I have to pay for the office space, wages/salaries, rates to the council, heating, lighting, pay for computers, copiers, phone bills, advertising, pens, papers, pencils etc etc Oh, and don’t forgot the Taxman! So you now know why I can’t give you them for free!
I’ve not seen the cartoon image I want on your site. How much does it cost to have a cartoon created?
This is definitely the most frequently asked question. And it always the most difficult one to answer. It all depends on the time it takes me to do it and how many changes you/the client wants before we get to a final result. As a studio we charge £40/$70 per hour. If a cartoon takes half an hour you get charged £20 – if it takes all week (50 hours) you’re looking at around £2000
You also have to take into account that a cartoon published in a local church magazine is going to be a lot lot cheaper than a cartoon used on a billboard in a high traffic area.
Can we use the cartoons on your web site for free?
No! They’re all copyrighted – some clients have insisted on total copyright – and their lawyers are a lot bigger and meaner than mine. Best thing to do is call or email me and we can discuss it. Please do not take anything without asking – you could get into a lot of trouble!
What program do you use for creating your graphics?
Adobe Photoshop mostly, which you can get from http://www.adobe.com, Corel Painter. I still draw 90% of the cartoons by hand on a drawing board. I do experiment with a Wacom graphics tablet, but it seems I’m a bit stuck in my ways after nearly 30 years of drawing cartoons. But I will persevere with it!
