Tom Gammill, creator of the comic strip The Doozies, was nice enough to send me this nifty Doozies T-shirt. Thanks, Tom!
If you haven't seen Tom's How to Draw series of videos, you're missing out. They're a blast, and the most refreshing and original thing I've seen in the comics field in years. Tom is, in the best possible sense, a great comic strip character himself.
The most recent How to Draw video, Number 23, features a visit with veteran cartoonist Mell Lazarus (Momma, Miss Peach) and his amazing baby grand piano, covered with drawings by dozens of comic strip cartoonists.
