Here’s the thing. I’ve been cartooning for eons. And posting here for years. But, now I’m gonna give it a name. FOG OF WORRY. There. And so I “launch” FOG OF WORRY. Even though I started this years ago, but you know, I needed to announce the name. And, a coupla years ago or so I did the first FOG OF WORRY cartoon (okay, maybe longer ago than that, but who’s counting?) And, I like that name. Like I like coming up with fake band names. But, more on that later. It will show up in FOG OF WORRY fo sho.
Being a professional smarty-pants is not all it’s cracked up to be. KIDDING. I LOVE IT!!! I have made my living with humor for 20+ years (I’d be more specific, but you don’t really wanna do math, now, do you?) Basically, I get paid to “smart off,” as we Southerners like to call it. Anyway, it’s about dang time I launched my web comic, now, isn’t it?
What IS a web comic, you may ask? Well, it’s basically, at its most simple, a cartoonist uploading their cartoons, so you can read and laugh and follow along, and of course, buy their coolio cartoon books and sich! I have about 40 cartoons ready to send to my publisher for pitch, and to a syndicate for pitch (and kabillions more on greeting cards, napkins, tissues (Yay-iss! People blow their noses on my artwork! The GLO-RY of being a professional artiste!!! . . . meanwhile, YOU, my dear “followers,” (and really, I don’t mean it to sound quite so Messianic), get to see these cartoons here, on my Laughing Redhead Blog. So, I’d love it if you read, enjoy, comment, ask questions, Follow, Tweet, and other fun cyber-activities . . . but, mostly, I really really really hope you laugh. Okay, so buying my books is up there with that. ‘Cuz, a girl’s gotta make latté money. Speaking of which, my book of cartoons, “The Older I Get, The Less I Care,” will soon be appearing on the shelves of that amazing DC institution/bookstore, Politics and Prose! You can, of course, buy it online. Go ahead and order multiples. You know you’ll be baaaa-aaaack.
Anyhoo. (Ugh, typed out that is such a bad choice . . . ) Here’s the cartoon I did, which gave me the name for my web comic . . . and now we launch . . . FOG OF WORRY. Enjoy.
