Bill Griffith (of Zippy the Pinhead fame) has been successfully creating his idiosyncratic comics since the early ‘70s. He’s a keen observer and a funhouse mirror when it comes to society’s foibles…and his cartooning chops are top-notch!
Griffith recently posted his “Top 40 List on Comics and Their Creation,” an incredible, inspiring and thought-provoking gift to the cartooning community.
Gems on this list range from the philosophical (#10: “Cartoon characters have souls”) to the downright practical (#12 on lettering and speech balloons, #26 on copyright protection)
After sharing these links with some of my friends on Facebook and Twitter, I realized that all this great info will soon be buried under all the millions of other posts added daily to the internet.
