I would love to take these illustrations into Photoshop and colorize them. But I don't know what color you want the characters to be and such. It would be a great side project for me since I am interested in getting into Graphic Arts.

Keep up the good work though.

Hi Weather, thanks for the offer, but I think I will stick with a minimalist, black and white approach. It seems appropriate given my strictly amateur skills and my desire to be as direct as possible. You'd be surprised how much thought can go into one of these little drawings, even as simple as they are, and that sometimes it takes a few tries to get it just right.

What about finding a medical literature company to set you up with distribution or marketing help.

If you ask me (Im not the guy to ask) I think it would make bulls eye doctors office reading. Gotta give er a flashy cover though.

No, I think this one deserves to stand on its own, but I will continue to do the blog.

I am going the Lulu route. It's very straightforward - no upfront costs, they do the distribution and I do the marketing.

Its money in the bank. I can't say how much... Probably like anything else there's a sweet spot in pricing. Too high and no one will buy. Too low and folks will think its junk.

silly people, don't even know why they buy. Its pretty funny I think.

Didn't get some of it, which is reasonable. But it got me giggling.
Thanks.

Can you create more Green turtle cartoons to entertain the masses and stay sharp, while you move this project into its next phase?
Whatever subject you roll out you formula will translate nicely I think.

My goodness, I love them! Bigblock is right: There needs to be more.

The masses want more? OK, I'll give you more. Inspired by this thread.

I love how in the first cartoon, the friend asks "You're a what now?" It's funny because people tend to become this and that and announce it to their friends, so the friend assumes it's some new lifestyle or conviction the other has adopted, but in our case it's not that we chose to adopt Autism - we were Aspie all the time, only discovered it recently! LOL

Is facial recognition a common problem on WP?

The rest of the cartoon was my story too, but I have no problem with facial recognition at all.

At least If I have Aspergers I am one without this problem.

Bigblock -

For me, it's more like I recognize the person, but can't identify them, or how I know them. There are a few people I don't have this problem with, mostly close family.
