    is an annual event where cartoonists around the world each try to create 24 pages of comics in 24 hours.

    Last year, over 1200 cartoonists took part at events in 17 countries.

    Cartoonists around the world will face the 24 hour comics challenge. To help these cartoonists, some comic book stores, educational institutions, libraries, businesses, and comics clubs will host special 24 Hour Comics Day events. They'll provide cartoonists with a space to work, access to food and drink, and camaraderie.

    Cartoonists can be found everywhere and as can their work. Everything from news papers, bill boards, television and other forms of entertainment. One area of entertainment that I've been particularly interested in the development of use of comics and this style of art is in the online gaming industry and in particular in the development of online casino type games known as slots. There appear to be many popular developers of games within this industry including Microgaming, Playtech and Net Entertainment. A website that I've found particularly useful in learning more about this evolving industry can be reached by visiting here www.australiancasinosites.com who link to various Microgaming online slots focused website. I think that for all cartoonists this is an area worthy of watching as there may be some opportunities for yourselves here. By visiting the careers sections of some of the mentioned companies I think you'll find that they often have job openings and are always looking for great cartoon artists.
