Hi Tom and thanks for posting your video. Got a kick out of it. Fun story and I like the way you packaged the narrative.

You don't need an agent or a publisher. We're in a new world of agentless self publishing. Even if an agent was the way to go you're not at that point yet. Here in the animation industry for example you need to be successful first before an agent will take you on as a client. And they can't do it as a cold call either. You must be referred by an existing client of theirs.

So don't worry about that end of it cuz it's the tail wagging the dog. Use social media. Focus on creating and KEEP Creating for the long term if you want to make your mark with your work. Strive to refine and improve upon each endeavor and you'll eventually get to the point where they come to you. Or...

Crowdfund your project! ;)

Good luck!

Charles, Thank you for taking the time to reply.

That is really sound advice. As you have gathered, I am new to this industry.

I am so glad that you liked the cartoon, your comments made me very happy indeed!

I am doing all I can to get my work 'out there', if you have any advice on different social media sites that I can post on - then that would be much appreciated!

You'll be pleased to hear that I am working hard on my next comic strip 'Reverend Jacobi da Pimp Daddy' and will have it online in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks again!

Tom.
