Dear Scribble Readers:
The Illustrated Daily Scribble has gone into hibernation. I simply can't earn a living, and do it daily. The word "scribble" belies the time it actually takes to produce a cartoon and get it up on the Web each day.
Several months back, the handwriting was on the wall that I had to move Scribble into some type of commercial position or quit doing it. If you're a regular reader, you may have noticed that during November I added advertising and items for sale even though those areas are not my strong suits. I'd hoped to get Scribble to generate enough money to replace even some of the income I'm losing doing it daily. But, that wasn't to be.
I'd like to see Scribble come back commerically in a periodical or group of publications or sites. If you have a business proposition regarding this, please contact me. Regardless, a writer friend told me today that he looked forward to Scribble's return once I again reach that creative point where I have to do it regardless of financial consequences.
The positive reader response to Scribble was a total, pleasant surprise to me, as was Scribble's second-place finish in About.com's voting for best Web political cartoon of 2004. I want to thank each of you for reading Scribble.
