Everyday People Cartoons by Cathy Thorne

by Cathy Thorne, over 2 years ago

I’m one of the few lucky Canadians to make a living in the comic arts. Not a great living, mind you, but a living — and one that I love.

I created my first cartoon in 1999 and since then have enjoyed seeing my work published around the world in print and online in newspapers, magazines, books, big and small brand marketing campaigns and a variety of licensed products.

The internet has been good to me. It offers me the freedom to create what I want, and gives me direct access to the people who enjoy what I do. Recently, my focus has been on creating greeting cards, magnets, books and calendars featuring Everyday People Cartoons, which I design and produce locally. I offer these products at retail shops, online and at craft shows, where people often recognize my work and are surprised to find out that the laughter they experienced on the world wide web was thanks to a real person, and a Canadian no less!

It makes me proud every time I can spread the word about Canada’s dedicated arts community whose artists — like me — are working to make a living doing what they love.
