What the Duck
One of my favorite cartoons of all time was Bloom County. I followed their adventures which included life at the Bloom Picayune newspaper. There aren’t a whole lot of cartoons that follow the lives of journalists and even fewer that deal with photographers. But photographers can find a cartoon series dedicated just to them as they follow the struggles of surviving in the wonderful world of professional photography in “What the Duck”.
Created by Aaron Johnson to be used as a “blog filler” when a fellow blogger was on vacation, the comic strip has generated a loyal following of photographers who can relate to the flock of photographing duck’s daily struggles to earn a buck in the cut throat world of photography.
