Hi, my name's Stephen McCranie, and I'm a cartoonist!

My goal is to make good ideas easy to access, understand, and share. To this end, I create comics with heartfelt stories that are appropriate for all ages. I also try to facilitate the spread of useful ideas by drawing short comic essays about concepts and principles that have been beneficial to me.

Please check out my kids graphic novel series, Mal and Chad:

You might also enjoy my picture blog, Doodle Alley, where I publish my comic essays.

Finally, check out my new comic, SPACEBOY, serializing now on Webtoons:…

I'm preparing to submit a work to the new Webtoons contest but several other dA's inform me that it's just a scam to get my intellectual property and do whatever they want regardless of my consent.  It sounds hokey but I'm not sure.  Can you clarify in any way as someone who submits to them?  Thank you

It is not a scam. I thought it might be when I first submitted, because the prize money was so ridiculous, but after some research, I realized they were good for it. Webtoons is a small branch of an enormous Korean company-- they have a business model that has worked super well in Korea, and they're trying to replicate it here in the English speaking world. 

Also, their contract is clean too-- they only ask for digital rights-- not subsidiary or print rights. They're not an IP farm. Because of them all I do is draw comics, and i love it! It's a great job.

Good luck!

Just thought you should know, I spotted Space Boy on Mangafox - not sure if that matters or not, but I figured it couldn't hurt to say

Thanks for keeping an eye out! Should be okay... Looks like they took it down.
