Any type of job you want?

Hey gang..if you had a choice of which field in cartooning you'd take, which would it be? I realize we are all into cartooning and comics itself, but what would it be? Newspapers and magazines..animation..greeting cards and T-shirts..airbrush..album and cd design...or perhaps television?.
Personally, I wanna see my work in the papers. I know the newspapers are in dire straits these days, but I think nothing would satisfy me more than trying to bring a smile to the faces of thousands of readers on a daily basis.My toon is based solely on stupidity and ineptness, and what with living near and working in the greater Daytona Beach area....the potential for a non-stop flow of inspiration is never ending.

I know this topic isn't as ' hardcore' a discussion topic as most of you are use to, but it is a topic for discussion nonetheless.............Thanks

That Driving force

What inpires you to toon?

Alright, as I've been working I've moved from Micron Pens, to pure brush work, to washes with some impressionistic brush marks, to the inevitable combination of all of them.

However, I love love love forever and ever love Brush Pens. I can put a faster line down with them and their portability gives me a really flexible work area (bars, friends houses, in front of my TV, my desk, etc...). That being said, I've been using the Faber-Castell brush pens for a while, but the tips don't last that long and after a while, the ink in the pen breaks down really quickly.

Any recommendations out there on some solid, possibly refillable, brush pens? What tools can't you live without?
