Jim Ivey's Sunday Comics

Jim Ivey's new book, Graphic Shorthand, is available from for $19.95 plus shipping, or you can order direct from Ivey for $25 postpaid. Jim Ivey teaches the fundamentals of cartooning in his own inimitable style. The book is 128 pages, coil-bound. Send your order to:

Jim Ivey
5840 Dahlia Dr. #7
Orlando FL 32807

Also still available, Jim Ivey's career retrospective Cartoons I Liked, available on or direct from Jim Ivey for $20 postpaid. When ordered from Ivey direct, either book will include an original Ivey sketch.


As strange as it might seem to people on the web today, the people you're trying to sell your cartoons to really do prefer being mailed hard copies in real envelopes. Otherwise, it's just asking to be spammed. Not all of the venues Jim mentions will pay us what we know the work is worth, but as I was once told years ago, when you're starting out it helps to "have someone print your samples for you." And that's essentially what a lot of small time jobs do for you in the beginning. They help build a portfolio.
