I don’t know cartoonist Mark Anderson—not yet, anyway—but I complete “get” him.

His burning desire since graduating college in 1997 has been to be a cartoonist. Unfortunately, he hit the market just before the traditional print publishing world fell? jumped? leaped? was pushed? off a cliff.

Within a few short years of Anderson’s arrival on the professional scene, the newspaper and magazine opportunities for selling his wares went the way of Thelma & Louise.

MARK ANDERSON podcast excerpt: “I don’t know if you could tell by my matinee idol good looks, but I had to be funny. I’m not that attractive. If I wanted any time with any young ladies growing up, I had to be funny.”

But Anderson was driven to find a way. He worked a day job to pay the bills and spent his pre-dawn and late-night hours drawing comics for whatever customers he could find – magazines and newspapers, sure, but also greeting card companies, trade publications, corporations and websites.

I “get” Mr. Anderson because I’ve taken a similar route as a freelance writer. I always wanted to write but never limited myself to just pursuing newspaper and magazine assignments. I kept an open mind to corporate reports, scriptwriting, copywriting and advertising, all of which eventually led me to books and Mr. Media.

Today, Anderson has broadened his horizons – and his Andertoons.com website – to include a subscription model for businesses that see humor as another way to their customers’ hearts.
