March 2nd is our second blog anniversary. Last year we had much to recap. This year, however, because we've made regular announcements, there's less to report. Our two big announcements this past year were: 1) Being published regularly in Investor's Business Daily, The Detroit News and other publications and Web sites; and 2) Publishing our second book, Black & White World II. So what's new?
Regarding publications: We happened to get some good news today. We're proud to report that our "Oh, Canada" cartoon will appear in tomorrow's (March 2) print edition of the national Canadian daily National Post, which has a circulation of over 250,000. In short: C&F invades Canada!
Since our July announcement, other publications and Web sites have published our cartoons, too, including (but not limited to):
-- Investigate Magazine (Australia and New Zealand)
-- Legal Juris
-- NYU Law School Magazine
-- The Triangle (Drexel University)
-- The Hemingford Ledger
-- Front Range Rampart
-- President & CEO Magazine
Our cartoons also appeared nationally in the documentary FahrenHYPE 9/11 and its companion book.
Our thanks goes to all those who have brought our cartoons to life with ink and paper.
Regarding books sales: The second book has been more successful for us than the first. Of course, we're always looking for more sales, so you'll regularly see old cartoons posted on the blog as a way of advertising the books. It won't be long before the first book is out of print, so get it while you can. We're grateful to everyone who has purchased our products -- you are helping us to continue.
There are other projects in the works, but that basically covers what's happened this past year. Again our thanks goes out to all our regular readers for spreading the word about our cartoons, especially the bloggers, who've helped make us know on the Web. And we still can't believe one of our book's made it into Saddam's palace (click and scroll)!
In the coming year, we hope you'll be seeing more of Cox & Forkum editorial cartoons in print and in pixels.Posted by Forkum at March 1, 2005 09:17 PM
