cartoonist

by: Laura Carrillo

A cartoonist is someone who draws cartoons.

To be a cartoonist you have to be able to draw. This is all you really need, but if  you get a fine art degree and  a business degree  that's even better.

Average is 60,000-30,000 a year.

However if you're lucky and get to work at Disney or something you get payed a lot more. Average Disney cartoonist/Animator gets paid $116,000-$125,000 a year.

Another example is the creator of a very popular manga named One Piece makes $24 million a year.    

Being rejected is normal for a cartoonist.

While it is hard to get a job as something like a cartoonist there is a future for this career.
