CAG! 90 – Why are all of the Cartoonists on Tumblr?
Talking about how to get your work seen on the Comics Are Great! show!
There are more ways than ever to share our work with our intended audience. Some solutions are as simple as pushing a button, while others may require a little bit of technical know-how.
But how do you find the hosting/publishing/social media solution that connects you to the right readers? Do you use them all? Or is there a value in investing in the culture of a smaller set?
How do the cultures of sites like DeviantArt, Tumblr, Reddit, or Smack Jeeves affect the way the audience interacts with our work, and how might that help us find the right solution and find the right audience?
And why have so many visual artists turned to Tumblr, anyway?
I’m joined by a group of young artists who will help me unravel these questions on Comics Are Great! 90.
