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!

    I do think that you ought to publish more about this
    topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people
    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.

  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.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect
    , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    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,

    or select flowers and sunflowers. Then you will learn taxi that funeral home does.

  15. You folks pay no attention to these comments or the feedback you get from folks trying to view your site, do you?

    Your archives are broken. B R O K E N.

    Give your fans at least some respect and pay at least a little attention to them. They’re the ones putting food on your tables.

  16. Thank you, I have just been searching for info about this topic for a while and
    yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. But, what about the conclusion? Are
    you certain concerning the source?

  17. May I just say what a comfort to find someone who genuinely knows what they’re talking
    about on the net. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

  18. The transits of Saturn are the Universe’s way of
    making sure we don’t get too set in our ways so as not to end up as rigid, unbearable curmudgeons
    who balk at anything that is not of his or her own iron willed, set in stone
    opinion. But after all, I studied philosophy and science, worked two or
    three jobs, and tutored underprivileged kids English grammar.

  19. Some people criticize this as a flawless design for i – Phone and prefer
    their old i – Phone. Analysts and pundits were
    off the mark with that prediction, as instead Apple chose
    to release the i – Phone 5C as a replacement for
    the i – Phone 5, which in the past the company would have
    continued to sell at a $99 price point on contract. Your total 2 year cost for the family plan is $6,316.

  20. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or tips? Kudos!

  21. hey there and thank you for your information –
    I’ve definitely picked up anything new from right here.

    I did however expertise some technical points using this website, as I experienced to reload the website a lot of times previous to I could get it
    to load properly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK?

    will sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage your high quality score if

  25. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try
    to get the hang of it!

    By the way, how can we keep up a correspondence?

  30. You say it doesn’t look like much however you let us into your world as part of a team of a bunch of characters that we as your fans have grown to love and charish. I think that is very special, you don’t get that from other artists. Thank you from the bottom of my heart not only for sharing but for the collaboration that is Zits, a beloved son, brother ,and friend to many. Just as my love for Calvin and Hobbes I wish this strip could live forever. Thanks again for all the laughs : )

  31. Thank you for providing an insight in your studio! Kind regards from a big Zits fan from Berlin! I always start my day reading a Zits comic and I own all the books 🙂

  32. Dear Jerry and Jim,
    I love, love, love your comic, especially the ones that overlap with Jeremey’s bids for college acceptance. In fact, I have a whole collection of comic advice from you guys which I would love to 1) scan and put on my website with credits from you, 2) share with families.
    Am I allowed to do this? I think that through my readership, yours will only increase, but I’ll wait until I hear back from you before making any move. In any case, my husband and I continue to howl at the latest antics. Love the bit about releasing the squirrels– on so many levels. Perfect.. Patti
