What Cartoonists Can Learn from Other Media in the Digital Age
By Dirk Deppey
I would like you to imagine a scenario: It is several decades in the future, and you are a cartoonist. You’d like to start selling your work on the open market. Unfortunately, several decades in the future the only viable field for doing business is on the Internet, where technical restrictions guarantee you will be locked out from entering the field without the assistance of a publisher.

Really interesting article.
