David Astor Now Writing For Huffington Post

My old pal David Astor who helped me along my way when I was self-syndicating alot of my work, now writes for Huffington Post. I was fortunate in the past to get along famously with David when he edited for the Syndication section of Editor and Publisher magazine. Unfortunately David left the publication and now writes topical humor and what was EandP's loss is now Huffington Post's gain. I urge folks to read through David's musings and feel free to comment on his writings in the "comments" section made available. You'll have to register with HP in advance of making a comment, but I think you'll do your web site a favor and generate some publicity for your own URL in doing so. Read his latest here.
Self syndication back in the late 80's and early 90's was simple because there wasn't much competition and the internet didn't proliferate our lives as much as it does now. A simple mention of my work in Editor and Publisher's Syndicates section always prompted a few inquiries and it was great to get that kind of publicity because alot of editors zero'd in on what that publication had to offer. Now with the internet at every editor's fingetips, the market for cartoons has become homogenized wherein artists seek out and work one on one with their own "private" clientele. Needless to say I miss those simpler times and David's position at Editor and Publisher did lend alot of valuable creedence to the cartoon and comc strip world.
