Happy April Fools… Here’s a look at some tongue in check, light-hearted, slightly quirky & fun marketing cartoon-related blogs.
Gaping Void by Hugh MacLeod - How to be creative Okay. So maybe this isn’t so “light-hearted”, the starving artist personna rarely is, right? Great stuff. I love his cynical approach and “oh so true” way of capturing the essence of things.
Baboon Book’s blog called Baboon Bellows by Rich Marcej - a talented writer / illustrator and business friend. I’d like to see more posts at his site, but when there is a lapse, it usually means he is super busy working on his next comic book.
Rich and I met when I worked in marketing at Hasbro on Transformers and GIJoe product lines. He worked on many brands — of course, the Transformers brand but also Inhumanoids and Battle Beasts. If I remember correctly, he created the product design as well as illustrations for Army Ants. He left Hasbro for Hallmark and later launched a line of comic books and products.
I like his approach to email marketing newsletters with an editorial calendar and suggestions for 31 content tips and ideas for email newsletters.
