I’m overhauling my website a bit, so hang tight while things look weird for time being
Update 10.19.17: If you didn’t notice before, danieljhogan.com used to redirect to my old WordPress install, here, at danieljhogan.com/home. I turned off the redirect, so the new website is actually at (for real this time) danieljhogan.com. You can see the new site there, but it is nowhere near finished yet.
I decided I had to rip off the bandage of the old redirect, a holdover from my previous host when I was new to installing WordPress (this was *years* ago). My plan is to move all of my old blog posts and pages from here to the new danieljhogan.com, but this will take some time.
In the meantime, this old version here will still be live, but I plan on shutting it down eventually. This sadly means old links won’t work, but in the big picture this needed to happen. The main reason for the drastic change is sites like Facebook and Mailchimp weren’t seeing the images in my posts, and that’s not good (and definitely defeats the purpose of email updates).
I’ve tested this on the new theme at danieljhogan.com and everywhere works. Better still: the new site has a responsive design, so it will read well on any device. (I would like the same for Clattertron at some point, but one project at a time).
Thanks for your patience! New blog posts are probably on hold for the short term until the new site is done. I changed over the Feedburner RSS (feeds.feedburner.com/DanielJHogan) to the new site, so subscribers won’t miss anything and don’t have to make any changes.
Back to work!
I was back at it this weekend: livestreaming myself painting an Inktober cartoon. I went live on Instagram Sunday evening, and then posted the video to the Clattertron Facebook page after I finished.
You can watch my video below.
As promised in yesterday’s post, here is a video of me painting Saturday’s Inktober cartoon. I decided to break the videos up in two to make them shorter. Like the first video, this one was live streamed on my personal Facebook page. I don’t know if I will continue live streaming video there or just go back to the Clattertron Facebook Page.

I know that hand.
Feast your eyes upon a new video of me inking another Inktober cartoon. This was Saturday’s cartoon (see the finished version on my Patreon, for free). I livedstreamed this video on my personal Facebook page (as a public post, mind you). I wanted to see how the reach compared to streaming on the Clattertron Facebook page.
Watch my video below! It’s about 25 minutes. I have another video of me painting the cartoon I’ll get up here soon.
Inktober: Let’s get inky.
October is here, and with it comes one of the holiest months on the cartoonist calendar: Inktober.
What is Inktober?
Inktober is a month-long drawing challenge. You create 31 “ink” drawings in 31 days. It may sound easy, but trust me, it will test your limits. I’ve attempted it twice in the past, and only completed once. The official rules say to share the drawing on social media with the #inktober and #inktober2017 tags. But, in the past I tried to post them to my blog(s) instead, and that’s where I got burned out. And fast.
So, this time around, I’m posting the images to Instagram, Facebook, and Patreon. I’m sure some of my drawings will end up on Twitter here and there too.

For the first day of Inktober, I livestreamed myself inking and painting my first drawing. Watch my Facebook Live video below.
