Hey everyone who is still hanging out on DA, its been a long time.  My apologies for not putting up content in the last few months.  There's a lot that has happened since I've last posted.  I built myself a new computer, got and quit a new job, started classes in app development and sooo many other things.  I'll start posting here again on a weekly basis, I've got a huge back log of content.  Posting work on DA is just frustrating for a cartoonist because it is SO much work for so little return in terms of audience.  Seriously on Tapastic the exposure is just so much better.  DA isn't exactly the most cartoonist friendly site on the web, but it still is a place to post work.

Aspiring cartoonist who feasts on beans, potatoes, pasta and eggs as he pursues his greater ambition.

Current Residence: San Diego

If you follow this account on a regular basis you will probably notice I've become increasingly erratic about posting here. My apologies.

Deviant Art isn't the best place to post cartoons online for a variety of reasons. Considering the way the site is designed it's hard to find cartoons and it is hard to figure out where to post them where people will see them.

Plus DA just doesn't have that large of an audience for cartoons unless you create Furry, Yaoi or other work for very specific fandoms.

I won't stop posting on DA in the foreseeable future, I'm just probably going to be pretty flaky about it.

If you're interested in following Vegetables for Dessert (the name of the strip) on a regular basis you can find it on:…

Tapastic, a great site for viewing and posting comics. If you are a cartoonist I would highly recommend using this site.…

I'm pretty sure you all know what facebook is.  Though facebook won't always tell people when a new cartoon is posted.…

I hear tumblr is pretty popular with the kids these days too.

Had to watch you. We share a similar sense of humor. If you get the chance to check out my strips, you'll see what I mean. Also, reading your journal entries, we both want to gain an audience for the same reasons. You've done great so far as you've been on dA for a lot less time than me and gained a lot more views.

Eh... the views are honestly kind of a flukey thing.  Most of the traffic stems from three MLP fan comics, and much of the rest of it comes from a few successful posts on reddit.

Building an audience for a webcomic is a tricky thing, it requires a great deal of patience, and it is more or less a matter of finding a community that shares your comedic sensibilities and is also under served in terms of entertainment.

The easiest things you can do to help yourself as a creator are to be productive and find other places to post your work other than DA.

If you would like more thoughts and opinions on webcomics, feel free to ask.  I think about this stuff obsessively.

Thanks for the advice. The problem with humor is that it's relative, and my humor is quite sick at times! I did tone it down when my strips were getting published a few years back in a few local papers, but since they were dropped the humor has gotten decidedly grosser, which for me, is more fun, plus I don't have to stick to a required format now. 

I have put them on other sites like Shadowness and toonsup and they have a Facebook page, but so far the best response has been with dA. Not a lot of views, but I do get some good positive comments. I guess it's just a matter of plugging away. I try not to think about it too much, it gets too frustrating. 

Thanks again, and I'll bend your ear for more advice in the future should I need it. :iconnuttygerbilplz::iconrussygerbilplz:
