Peace, Love & Wi-Fi is in all the bookstores now. It holds a year’s worth of Zits strips between those groovy tie-dye covers, and it would make an awesome Holiday gift. Just saying’…
Zits has a new comic book in Denmark. Issues #1 and 2 are out and they look quite handsome. Here’s the cover of issue #1. You’ll want to keep it hermetically sealed in the wrapper for eventual auction.
This 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.
The 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.
Here’s a better shot of the comic strip corner. If you squint your eyes, you can see it back there by the wastebasket.
I wish this area looked more impressive, but I probably spend more time on the couch than at the drawing board while working on ZITS.
We 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.
That’s it! Hope you enjoyed the tour.
