A SCOOBY-DOO DRIVER'S LICENSE! My New Promo That Celebrates My Tenth Anniversary Drawing Him!

I wanted to make up a promo item for my tenth anniversary of drawing Scooby this year and to also advertise my art blog, so I made up a Scooby-Doo driver's license! It came out swell! I think Scooby fans will love them and I've given them out at some appearances of late including my Springfield Library appearance and I handed some out at Wizard World Philly as I walked it. Smart Scooby fans will know that the 3400 Cahuenga Blvd. address and zip code is the original Hanna-Barbera address in California. I got them professionally printed on glossy stock paper and they're business card size as well just like a real driver's license. I laminated a bunch of them as well to give them an official look. It's a quality piece of promo! I got two backs printed: one has my anniversary on it and the other version is just a generic Scooby background. I'll have them up for sale with a link up soon since the lamination costs money to have it done! They also would make a great cheap gift for the Scooby fan who has everything! I'll also be getting a Scooby t-shirt printed up later this year too for my anniversary! I'll post the art for that soon!

That's awesome promotional stuff. I love getting cool stuff like that from cons but it's always few and far between. I was thinking of getting a business card made and then doing individual doodles on the back of them all.

I have some sketch cards myself but they take time to draw doing little qucik sketches. It's easier to just hand out cards that are pre-done.

Well I was thinking take some time while doing other things and just scribble on the whole lot of them. Haven't decided how many I'll get yet or anything...everything with me is always in the works. They'd all have to be done in advance though, on the spot they might leave the customer with a bad example of my stuff.

You have to remember to leave 2-3 weeks for printing and delivery time. My cards were in my hands on the Wednesday before Wizard Philly which started on Friday. Always plan early for printing time and shipping time so that things aren't stressed.

This is true, that's okay, I have no events planned for like EVER...I'm thinking of where I want to put an upcoming strip and gonna put that link on there.

What'd you do when starting out?

It depends on what you want to do. The web is taking off in terms of digital comic strips, but there is little to no revenue yet. Comic book work is tight right now and as always there are a lot of people who want to do it for little money.

As for my experiences, go to the podcast links I have on my blog which are under something... I did a good one for Comic Geek Speak about 4 years ago. Episode 140 I believe is the full one. Download it and listen to it.

Will do.
Yeah a lot of industries are expanded and cheapened all at once by new tech.
