What’s New With Adult Coloring Books?

Adult Coloring Books

For the past year or so, I’ve been hearing about coloring books. People seemed to have disappeared into social groups where all they do all day and night is color. I remember the fun I had as a kid using coloring books. We had a plethora of them, because a company called Western Publishing used to print them all.

We’d have coloring books based on historical figures, movie stars, television stars, sports stars, politicians, animals, you name it, there was a coloring book based on it.

They weren’t that elaborate, just nicely inked line work that actually resembled the objects of the book’s intent. We had Crayola Crayons and we would use all sorts of coloring approaches and techniques. As soon as we used up on coloring book, we went on to another. They didn’t cost much but sometimes the choice ones were hard to find.

Nowadays, the new boom is in the area of adult coloring books. These are coloring books that are a bit more sophisticated in design, as adults like to spend the time coloring every detail and nuance. Many of these designs are brilliant, and the pioneers in this area have made lucrative careers selling them .

Now that some have proven how much money can be made from these books, the usual wave of get-rich-quikers has muddied the pool. You’ve got people stealing art from wherever they can get it to publish hack coloring books at premium prices. You’ve got internet marketing gurus who claim they can show you how to make a fortune creating your own coloring books when in fact all they’re doing is using other people’s artwork via clipart. People buy this stuff to publish and then find out later the art wasn’t royalty free and now they’re looking at a lawsuit or two.

You just can’t introduce a product nowadays without the low-brows messing it up.

There are, however, some brilliant publishers who work hard at their craft. It’s a situation of separating the chaff from the wheat, but the glut is still there as the publishing houses don’t screen for quality.

All is not lost, though.

I’ll be producing a few coloring books that go along with my already established cartoons and comic books. In addition, I’ve made deals with large companies to produce some art.
It’ll be fun to see how things go but it’ll take time. I do charitable work and I’m scheduled for two coloring books for hospitals to raise money.

Stay tuned for more about adult coloring books and coloring books in general, there may be some surprises ahead!

Adding Cartoons To Copywriting Is Cool

Lots of people ask me to addd cartoons when I’m writing articles for their websites, blogs, etc..

Cartoons are a universal way of communicating as they’re so easy to understand when done right. There was a time in the world when newspapers couldn’t do without cartoons. People would rush to the newsstands to get their favorite magazine or newspaper just to catch up on their favorite cartoon characters such as Popeye, Peanuts, Dondi, Terry and the Pirates, Dick Tracy, Blondie, and hundreds of others.

In addition were the editorial cartoons the most powerful cartoon format there is. Entire countries could be done in with a series of editorial cartoons alone. It’s how the United States came to power as several of the Founding Fathers were cartoonists and took a swipe at then King George. Those cartoons rallied the colonies and the United States of America was born.

Cartoons and copywriting on the internet are following the same patter. Thanks to social networking sites like Facebook, Reddit, YouTube, Twitter, and others, we cartoonist/writers can hit twice with a well written article backed up by a great cartoon. These cartoons and articles get shared like crazy on the social networking sites and it’s not uncommon to find one’s work being shared all over the planet in a matter of hours. Even older works that suddenly get discovered can reach new heights much to the pleasure of my editors and publishers.

My editors and publishers are people I’ve known for years and some just met. We know the ins and outs of search engine optimization aka SEO and that cartoons going along with copy well tagged means higher rankings in the search engines like Google. People looking for a cartoon about some topic or other or an article can easily find it with the right query string.

It’s lots of fun illustrating stories I’ve written and getting the fan mail is an uplifting experience.

So if you’re wondering how to make money writing on the internet, consider using cartoons along with your copywriting.

Making Money With Teespring T-Shirts!

Teespring! A new way to make money with t-shirts online?

There have been lots of money making crazes online over the years and some pan out while others do not. It depends on many factors to the road to success but the latest craze is with t-shirts via a sight called Teespring.

What is Teespring?

Teespring is an unique approach to selling t-shirt related merchandise that makes it easy as pie for people around the world to create, market, and get paid with t-shirts. It has literally taken the marketing world by storm and generated millions of dollars for people who normally might be struggling at a 9 to 5 job or some other dreary existence.

Teespring has a simple interface and signup that gets you started right away with your own designs or help from Teespring itself. It is so simple that teenagers and seniors are finding it fun and lucrative. It does not mean that everyone becomes a t-shirt whiz but you get a fighting chance, it doesn’t cost anything up front.

What is a Teespring Campaign?

A Teespring Campaign is what the process of selling t-shirts via Teespring is called. It has a set number of shirts to sell during a set time period to ensure that there are enough requests to justify printing and shipping. Meet those goals that you set and you make money.

Is Teespring the only t-shirt company that has a business model like this?

No, but it led the pack. Now everybody and their brother is doing it which can increase one’s chances of success. Each online t-shirt company has it’s own rules and not all are ethical. The plus side is that there are so many watchdog groups that any online t-shirt company that cheats or any online t-shirt marketer that cheats can be found out quick and answer to the law.

How can I make money selling t-shirts online?

This is a question I’m often asked and can say you have to find what fits you. Look around at the various t-shirt companies and see what they offer. Check out the market trends and ask successful marketers. Be careful of the get-rich-quick-gurus who promise the stars. If they really made that much money they wouldn’t be telling people about it or selling high-priced courses.


Teespring has done wonders for lots of people and it’s not without its bugs but time will iron these things out.

Okay, I’ve been making money online since the early ’90s. People get jealous when I would tell them I sit at home eating chocolate cake and drinking milkshakes and playing video games for a living.

Working on two novels, “The UFO Mafia” and “Dandy The Dumb Blonde Horse”

Well, I’ve got to make that money and to hedge my bets I’m still working on two novels.

The first is called “The UFO Mafia” which chronicles the UFO phenomenon that I ran into while living in the Hudson Valley are aof New York State. It’s all true and has data that you won’t believe and may scare you out of your wits. It’s got lots of humor though. The second novel is a somewhat drama about a Palomino filly named Dandy who gets into trouble when she ruins her mistress’ wedding.

She’s up against evil county animal control agents and a sinister rancher family of a man and his two cruel sons. Dandy’s family are the good folks who own a large ranch with horses and other livestock and when Dandy is threatened to be removed by the county workers she escapes with the help of a couple of friends, a Peregrine falcon and an old hound dog. Together they venture into the nearby desert and get tangled up with a herd of wild horses. From there Dandy and the characters find themselves swept up into a supernatural adventure pitting good against evil, nature against science and true love.

This book is funny, very funny but it’s got some elements that will have you on the edge of your seat with action and adventure no one has read or seen before. If you love horses and stories of ancient alien artifacts and the bonds of family as well as the challenges two people in love face you’ll love this book. Dandy will be out before “The UFO Mafia” and so far the reviews are stellar. Far better than I had even dreamed of. So stay tuned for further info!

What the treatment does is uses one’s own stem cells to repari damaged tissue. In this case it’s the heart. It’s a three day procedure and then just go home and watch the miracles occur. I’ve sent dozens of people to such treatments as I work for the Repair Stem Cell Institute. Nowadays the technology is so amazing that in a few weeks to a few months people who couldn’t walk two feet are outside riding bikes and jogging. So hep out if you can or share on Facebook please.
