Like so many other people, I am an aspiring comic strip artist and part-
time editorial cartoonist who wants to become successful enough so I can
quit my day job and draw full time. I look forward to experiencing what
your web site and forum has to offer. Cheers!

What a great site! I'm gearing up to finally make a push to become a
published cartoonist, and I never realized how much info was out here on
the WWW.
  Keep up the great work! When you do start charging for this, I'm sure
it will be well worth the cost, if only so I can chat with published
tooners.

Peter:
This is an incredible resource you have created here (and as a student
of JavaScript my jaw is on the floor as I contemplate the effort you have
put into this: I hope you make some money off of this script!)

I have missed the toon talk on AOL since I left two years ago. This is
tremendous. I've already bookmarked you.

Congrats on your recent recognitions!  I don't know anybody more
dedicated to the world of toons, except perhaps Roger Rabbit.  But with
Jessica right around the corner, who wouldn't be?

God bless cartoons.....   I learned to READ on the Denver Post in 1949...  
(Born in Golden at Colo Sch.of Mines in '46.- never have to take geology -
it's a given. - nothing else to do, you know?)...  Fortunately, we moved 
to Long Beach in '50, so I could complete my life & mind-set by falling 
in love forever with Hopalong Cassidy... I think it was the steel-grey 
hair...... Then we followed the oil-patch to Whyoming.
   NOW THERE was where I got to read all the old comic books BEFORE the 
COMICKS CODE!!!
   I love cartoons so much that I was really pissed when my Mom threw 
out all my VERY original ZAPS........ and, also.... God bless Ralph 
Steadman...    

Love, Shannon Forbes  (screen name:  ANNONSHAY)

Tooner! 
   Hey, I just downloaded a flock of your cartoons! I wrote to you about 
3 weeks ago and had no idea what a celebrity you were!  You're even in 
Tom Lichty's book "AOL Membership Kit"...
   The cartoons are very good... nicely drawn!  Do you use PhotoShop or 
are you an IBMer? Anyways, just wanted to let you know... I am now a fan 
and will download your cartoons every month!

Take it easy Tooner.......

the cartoonists in the newspapers. Keep up the great work that you 
are doing!

A grateful thank you for the downloading info regarding cartoons.  It's 
still a brand new world out in AOL for me.  But having people like you 
in it makes it all worth while.  

You may have developed an appreciative friend or a painful parasite.  
Don't worry the last was a little bit of humor.

As a new member to AOL, these cartoons are the most fun I've had so far.

     This looks like a great forum, and it'll be nice to communicate with 
other cartoonists, as I live in a pretty remote cartoonist-free zone.  
Many thanks to who(whom?)ever founded this outlet...It's long overdue.

    Hi,

    I'm a professional cartoonist, and just wanted to let you know how 
much I enjoy the forum. Very informative and a lot of fun.

I've just started running my strip online on the Web 
(users.aol.com/muskrat500 or http://www.msn.fullfeed.com/muskrat) 
and archiving my older work. I found lots of 
useful information here for the process.

Thanks,

Hello Pete. Congratulations on a terrific forum on AOL. I'm Barry Cooper, 
manager of Orlando Sentinel Online (keyword Orlando), also here on AOL. 
I entered your area today while planning an expansion of OSO that will 
include a new feature called "Black Voices."

Voices, which will debut Thanksgiving Day, will offer news and 
information of special interest to African-Americans, including -- I hope 
-- cartoons about the black experience. My question for you is this: do 
you employ any special tricks to make your cartoons so striking online? 
The color toons are awesome, and even the black-and-white drawings look 
good.

To this point, my staff hasn't had much success getting toons to look as 
well online. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Barry

Mr. Tooner,
   Thank you, a million times thank you. This is the most fun I've ever 
had sober, and I'm starting to get the hang of it. Appreciate the help, 
owe you a cheeseburger.
