When I worked at the Mirror, I had to make one deadline a week. One. My editorial cartoon for the alt weekly had to be emailed before 5pm Monday. After that, Miller time.
Of course, I was drawing a cartoon that was going to appear Thursday, a three-day lead, which meant I had to pick something that would still be topical and, hopefully, make sense by the time the paper hit the stands. That was the real challenge. But still, just one deadline. A week.
Halifax-based freelancer Michael De Adder, though has the opposite problem. He has to do six cartoons in ONE DAY.
