Back in 2003, I was looking for a city to live in. I knew I wanted to live among cartoonists. (I ended up playing is safe and moving to New York.) I wish I had owned a copy of Tom Spurgeon’s Local Scene List back then. It’s a godsend for cartoonists who are trying to enter new communities and make new connections, especially communities that are more far-flung than New York.
Take a look at Tom’s list and help him update it if you can.
Right now, I’m working on a list of all the micro-publishers who were active in 2013, and I’m tracking their activity. That list only has about 50 names on it, but it’s still difficult (and often mind-numbing) work. My hat’s off to Tom!
