At Toon Outlet we believe more heads are better than one. We encourage cartoonists and gagwriters to work together.
I feel the proper split for any cartoon sale is as follows: Cartoonist - 50 percent; Gagwriter - 25 percent; Marketing - 25 percent. So if a gagwriter writes the gag and markets the cartoon he should get 50 percent and the cartoonist should get 50 percent. If the cartoonist markets the cartoon he should get 75 percent and the gagwriter should get 25 percent. If an outside agency, such as Toon Outlet markets the cartoon they should get 25 percent, the gagwriter should get 25 percent and the cartoonist should get 50 percent. Some agencies and syndicates charge 50 percent for marketing. When this happens the cartoonist and gagwriter should split the remaining 50 percent with the cartoonist taking 75 percent and the gagwriter taking 25 percent.
