Dave Walker is a freelance cartoonist based in Essex, UK. He has used WordPress to create cartoon websites since 2005. These have included sites with cartoons for bloggers, cyclists and churchgoers, along with his own blog and portfolio site, davewalker.com. Dave draws a weekly cartoon for the Church Times newspaper, and his forthcoming book, ’The Cycling Cartoonist’, is to be published by Bloomsbury in June 2017.
In his talk I shared some handy hints for running a creative business using WordPress, including some of the themes and plugins he found most useful, lessons learned, and mistakes made (and there have been a few of those). All illustrated with some cartoons, including one or two brand new ones created specially. Drawing experience not required.
