Satish Acharya is creating Cartoons & tutorials

Every time I disagree/argue/fight with an editor over a cartoon, I think of getting out of that client to protect my freedom of expression. And that forces me to do a quick calculation to rearrange my monthly income sources. That is the disadvantage as well as advantage of a freelance cartoonist. The advantage is, you're not tied up to a publication. And the disadvantage is it's not easy to get an editor/or a client who assures no interference.
But can a cartoonist protect his independent voice, without worrying about the pressures of the editors or publications? This is my first step to test that query! This was suggested by many cartoon lovers when I started broadcasting my cartoons through whatsapp. They were eager to pay a fee to receive my cartoons, because they wanted to protect an independent voice. They believe this independent voice is more crucial than ever before, as the govts start influencing the media houses/editors to push their agenda.
Hope more people will support this effort. Let me assure that nothing of my social media activities will change with this initiative. You'll continue to receive cartoons. Only change could be, sometimes may receive some cartoons after a slight delay.
And 5% of your contribution will go to a charity to support the studies of poor students. In the long run, I want to start a small academy for youngsters and also want to start a cartoon magazine.
