Savage Chickens cartoons cover a wide range of topics and are available for licensing. For example, do you need business presentation cartoons or psychology cartoons for a textbook? Are you looking for cartoons with an environmental, health, or family perspective? Chances are pretty good that I’ve got a cartoon about the topic you’re looking for. To find cartoons by topic use the search feature at the top of the page or give me a shout and I’ll help you out.

Please note that all of my cartoons are copyrighted material, and may not be used without permission or purchase. Usage rates are based on distribution, and can be low-cost to purchase for your publication, website, presentation, or other media. Read on to learn about various usage rates as well as allowances for educational and non-profit use. For more info at any time, contact me.

Permission & Payment for Web Use

If you want to mention my site and put an image of one of my cartoons into a personal, non-profit blog, thank you! I usually just ask non-profit bloggers to:

  • Please include a link to www.savagechickens.com
  • Please do not edit or translate the cartoon.
  • Please do not post more than one cartoon per month.
  • Please use a copy of the cartoon file that is stored on your own server space (i.e. no hotlinking).

If you have any questions about any of that, give me a shout. And if your site is for-profit, please contact me for rates information.

If you want to post one of my cartoons on a content-sharing site, make sure you check their image copyright policy first. Some sites allow you to post only images that you own the copyright for (such as photos that you’ve taken, for example). You can’t post my cartoons on those sites, but posting links to my site is always fine and much appreciated! Also, feel free to use Savage Chickens icons for personal non-profit use whenever you like. Also, do not scrape my feed and re-publish it on your site. That’s not cool!

Custom Work

I occasionally take on custom work if time permits. Contact me to learn more. Time allowing, I might even be available for stop-motion animation work.

Cartoons on Products

You can get cartoons on mugs and t-shirts and other stuff at the store, but I don’t allow people to print their own. If you have an idea for a product that you’d like to see, please contact me.

Derivate Works

I do not permit derivative works. You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work. Do not create translated copies of the cartoons. Savage Chickens – Chicken Cartoons on Sticky Notes and all associated characters and likenesses are the property of Doug Savage.
