Cartoon Bluebird

Cartoon birds are an excellent subject matter for microstock. They come in such a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, the options for character development are virtually limitless. This frantic bluebird is one my earliest microstock characters and one of my favorites, in spite of his low sales numbers. I have a couple of microstock chickens that share the same frantic design, and by contrast, those chickens have been consistent sellers. This taught me that having some microstock that can be edited to make several different unique characters not only reduces your overall workload but it increases your chance of making a sale. There may be a higher demand for cartoon chickens than cartoon bluebirds, but I still like this bit of flapping fury.

Cartoon Fish

This is one of the few cartoon fish I’ve drawn for sale as microstock. In my experience cartoon fish have never really been big sellers. Cats and dogs always do well, but fish seem to have far less mass appeal. I get it, not everyone has a use for a cartoon fish. Still, they’re fun to draw and the sheer variety to choose from means that the creative options are virtually limitless. I like to think that this blue-fish is dealing with a nasty bout of hiccups.
