Jerry Scott’s Studio Tour

DSC_0356This is where I spend most of my day. The studio is a big room in the center of the house with lots of light. It has morphed into mostly a space for painting and napping thinking, but you can see the drawing board in the corner next to the window that I’ve reserved for working on comic strips. I write most of the strips and draw pencil sketches for Jim, so my part of creating ZITS doesn’t take up a lot of real estate.


DSC_0357The right side of the studio is the painting side. I’m an oil painter when I’m not being a cartoonist.






The smaller monitor on the left is for me to view reference photos while I paint, and the larger TV monitor is for   the NFL PBS documentaries. There are a couple of local landscapes in progress on the wall above the TV.




DSC_0361Here’s a better shot of the comic strip corner. If you squint your eyes, you can see it back there by the wastebasket.


DSC_0363I wish this area looked more impressive, but I probably spend more time on the couch than at the drawing board while working on ZITS.


DSC_0154We live on a working cattle ranch on the central coast of California, so you never know when some of the neighbors will drop by to say hi.


DSC_0169That’s it! Hope you enjoyed the tour.

  1. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone
    to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog
    and would like to find out where u got this from.
    appreciate it

  2. Thanks much!
    It’s been good to see something about the real people behind the folks that are characters in Zits. Do you (or did you) have families that you use for inspiration? The creator of For Better or Worse drew from her own family and context for that strip, and now that she’s doing re-runs, she occasionally comments on the items in the strip. That heightens the appreciation for the creativity and effort required to produce these great art and social comment works day after day. I wish we had some insights into Walt Kelly’s good work that went in to his iconic Pogo strip! What a mind… and you all have that ability to take a bit of real life and share it with us. Thanks for your good work!

    However, the suit claims that, despite the injury, coach Rocky Bonomo alleged pressured Wright to wrestle in practices to prepare to wrestle in a dual meet

    world wide sensation.February or March is the best time for this, simply because then is the dormant time for plants.

    When itt comes to gardens and farms, there are many dangers posed by gophers
    Just like any other property, farms and commercial gardens
    are subject to the dangers of gopher tunnbels because they pose safety issues.

    do not talk about these subjects. To the next!

  8. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
    some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  9. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get
    my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Many thanks!

  10. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
    people think about worries that they just do not know about.

    out the whole thing without having side effect

    Although it is full of psychology-talk, which may not be to
    the taste of some, Birthing From Within is still a very worthwhile read, especially in preparation for birth, or for healing from past birthing trauma.

    With a 50cm waist and 81cm hips, Ioana Spangenberg’s hourglass figure has made her famous over night after pictures of her incredible 20-inch waist began to circulate the Internet and also caused a lot of controversy.

  12. In days gone by when engines like google were still of their infancy,
    it absolutely was easy to gain top rankings by adding keywords
    throughout your copy. Writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve
    Dillon kick ass by having an examination of the American identity.

    It reminded me a little bit of Italian artist Alberto Ponticelli
    (who, coincidentally, is currently drawing the IDW miniseries Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliaths).

  13. “Even when they do find love and intimacy, the calming effect of oxytocin may not be able to overcome the high levels of stress hormones that keep their nervous system twanging” (Kuchinskas,
