A quick plug.

The Cartoonist’s photos @Picfair. Buy and license. Apart from the rather cheap and unnecessary plug, Picfair is a fabulous stock photo website. In fact I think it’s the best stock photo site ever, set up by former Guardian journalist, Benj Lanyado.

Picfair’s rules:
Upload your pics. Choose your price. Change it whenever you want.
An open-to-all image market, controlled by you… if someone wants to use your pic… you get paid.
Keep all copyright, and get what you ask for. If your pic costs £5, that’s what you’ll receive.

It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s fantastic and I can only recommend it to anyone who thinks their photos are good enough to be worth a bob or two.

Due to a server error my whole website was wiped off the face of this planet. While the homepage itself was easy to restore, The Cartoonist is not that easy to get back up and running again. My thanks go to the technicians over at Server Centre – without their help  the SQL database would have never been sorted.

Over the weekend I will slowly restore single posts to the weblog, but I’m afraid quite a few will be lost forever. Mostly because I simply can’t be bothered uploading all the images again and then assign them to each single post. Anyway, most of the stuff is up and running now. Apologies for the inconvenience.
