Charles Schulz Interview Circa 1984

I have a number of artistic influences.  The chief one has been newspaper comic strips, which are sadly dying nowadays in this digital age.  Those were the first form of comics I ever read.  The late Charles Schulz (1922-2000) was one of the more influential cartoonists on my work.  Renowned as the creator of Peanuts, his drawing style was minimal and rather rough compared to the more beautiful and detailed work of Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) or Walt Kelly (1913-1973) of Pogo fame.  Yet he could definitely write gags and stories.

Here’s a video of him being interview from 1984 on the San Francisco talk show “People are Talking”.

 

Thanks to siffil8 of YouTube for putting this up.

In the future, I’ll have to do a post on my artistic influences.
