Peckham found microstock to be the perfect industry for selling his collection of quirky characters, and he chose Fotolia because of the ability to connect with buyers from several different countries using localized sites. “I love when I get an email telling me someone just bought my cartoon. That means someone out there probably laughed,” says Peckham. “It’s a wonderful feeling knowing my cartoons are being enjoyed and earning me money at the same time. I've never been paid much as a cartoonist (kids, think twice about devoting all your efforts to a cartooning career – only a few make a living), but microstock allows my work to find a growing, laughing audience.”

A 22-year veteran of the Toronto Sun, Peckham has some words of advice to share with budding artists, photographers, and cartoonists: “Be creative. To get those great ideas, try making space between your thoughts. Spend more time not thinking. It's easier to get an idea when you're not thinking. I'm serious. Try it.”
