A Friendly Reminder About Cartoon Copyrights


———
This website and its cartoons are registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.

fbilogo

“The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of a copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by fines and federal imprisonment.”


People love to share cartoons on Facebook and Twitter, in newsletters, blogs, presentations at work, in classrooms, on bulletin boards, in business communications and e-mails. I LOVE it when people share my cartoons —- but there is a RIGHT (legal) way to share and a WRONG (illegal) way to share cartoons.

According to an article in Training Magazine, the best way to keep the copyright cops from knocking at your door is “Always assume that any pre-existing work you’d like to use is copyrighted work and that it requires permission from the copyright owner to use or copy.”

If you infringe on someone’s copyright, you may be liable for legal fees and fines up to $50,000 per violation.  Stealing a cartoon off the internet to use in a Powerpoint presentation, website or newsletter without permission is a punishable crime. Subjecting your employer to legal hassles over copyrights may also cost you your job. Frankly, it’s much cheaper to pay a modest permission fee to the person who created the work and owns the copyright.

Here are a few excellent articles that I think you will find helpful and informative:

Copyright permission is easy and affordable. All you need to do is ask.

Support Your Favorite Comic Strips

How To Support Your Favorite Comic Strips by Randy Glasbergen

website-DI_CharacterFooter3

Once upon a time, people read their favorite comic strips in the local daily and Sunday newspaper. Some of us even bought more than one newspaper so we could enjoy many more of our favorite strips and panels. For decades, comic strip creators have been financially supported by the newspapers who pay to publish their work. The comics business still works this way, but things are changing fast.

These days, more and more of us are reading comics online in digital newspapers or special comic showcases like GoComics  and Comics Kingdom You may already have a free app on your phone or tablet that lets you enjoy hundreds of new comics every day. Your favorite online comic strips depend on subscribers and advertising, not newspapers, to help them survive, thrive and keep the cartoonist families fed.

When you enjoy your favorite comics online, please be sure to “like” or “share” or “subscribe” or “add to favorites”. These simple clicks add up and show advertisers where to send their payments.

Your support matters and it is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Don’t Be Confused by Google!

Don’t Be Confused by Google

If you type “free cartoons” into Google, they will show you many cartoons in their image database. If you type “free cars” in Google, they will show you many cars in their image database. Neither the cartoons nor the cars are free. It’s a shame because they showed me a really nice Porsche I thought I was entitled to.

How I Colorize My Cartoons

How I Colorize My Cartoons by Randy Glasbergen 

toon849

 

I’m often asked what software I use to create my cartoons, so here is a quickie answer…

1) First I sketch my cartoons in pencil on paper, sitting at a big oak drawing table. Very low-tech. If I’m not happy with my first sketch, I’ll feed it to the shredder and start over. Sometimes it takes as many as four or five tries before I get it right.

2) When I’m satisfied with a pencil sketch, I trace the drawing with black ink using a Flair felt-tip pen. Still pretty low-tech. But I probably ordered the pen online from Staples, so some high-tech does creep into the process.

3) After I erase the pencil marks and clean up any stray lines with Liquid Paper (God bless you, Mrs. Nesmith)  I scan my cartoons (Epson DS-6500) into Photoshop CS6 on my Mac and save as a high-resolution TIFF file.

4) I add color to the black and white TIFF cartoon with a Wacom tablet and a wonderful, easy software program called Colorize. There’s a quick video demo @ http://www.gdykes.com/  I love Colorize because it’s fast and easy, nearly as simple as coloring in a coloring book…and it automatically stays inside the lines! If you’re an illustrator or cartoonist who has never used Colorize, please check it out. It’s a small software company that would love your support!

5) After I’ve colorized my cartoon, I bring it back to Photoshop for last minute adjustments before saving it to a cartoon database on my computer. I generally save one copy as a TIFF and create another copy in GIF format to put on my website.

I’ve tried other colorizing software (Corel, Illustrator, Painter) but nothing comes close to Colorize for speed, simplicity and ease of use…and the finished results always look great, bright, clean, sharp in print and digital format.

Here are a few cartoons I’ve created using Colorize Software …BHalftoon-1868toon-1680toon-1737toon966
