Ever wanted to try your hand at making a comic strip? Perhaps you’ve been throwing away those napkin doodles you thought no one would appreciate? Or, you’re an accomplished animator and you’re looking to share your work with the community? The Daily Bulldog will be unveiling a new weekend feature this Sunday that will create a space for community members to submit and share their cartoons, drawings, and animations.
Much like our popular Sunday Photos feature, anyone can email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit works they would like to share with the community. Our editorial team will review the works and make sure they meet our guidelines for submissions. Our first edition will feature two animated works from local artists. Tom Martin shares his 2D animated short “A Snowman Walks into Wendy’s” along with the first installment of “Reign of Pluton” a fantasy series by Zack D.
