What this job is about
Your teacher might have yelled at your when she caught you doodling a seal with superpowers in the side of your notebook, but you might actually be able to turn your love of cartoons into a viable career option. Not just for newspapers anymore, cartoonists enjoy different mediums, like web comics, storyboarding for marketing applications, greeting cards and yes, even old school publications. While you'll need to have natural art skills, it also helps to have time management expertise, especially since you'll spend a lot of time working on your own. Turns out, your math class scribble might actually become a way for you to earn money doing what you love.
