So I’m back on my “Paws” kick again, you know, my comic strip/panel with Tombo and Jacomo. When I used to publish, I had quite a large following on Instagram and I’ve noticed that similar panels and strips have quite a large following there.
I am considering publishing daily on Instagram, Facebook and hopefully GoComics. I want to see how the GoComics thing goes before I start. I was thinking of maybe the fall, you know, maybe on Labor Day.
I had hoped to publish my Tomversation comic panel starting in January, but a few newspapers contacted me and they were interested in daily publication, but they gave me the run-around for so long that I put off publishing online. It amazes me how selfish newspaper editors can be. I had a few very large dailies interested in the feature and they had me on a string, practically sending me contracts to sign, but then things just stopped in mid-negotiation. I don’t know why. I felt all of a sudden ostracized like Kathy Griffin. I just fell off their radar. It put me back months since I was waiting to start publishing in the newspapers and online at the same time.
Anyway, “Paws” is sort of a mix between Mutts and Krazy Kat. Tombo the Rabbit and Jacomo the Mole are the stars. There are other characters, too, who live in their little village of Coconut Cove.
I’ll keep you posted as things move along.
