Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Teenage Doodles Wanted

The guy from King Features Syndicate called the other day and said he's working on some designs for Zits marketing. He needs some blue ballpoint pen doodles that look like they could have been done by Jeremy.

Easy enough, right? I've been making unnecessary phone calls for the last few days just to go into my doodling zone but everything I draw looks like the doodles of a guy who's been drawing for thirty years. I can't seem to unlearn what is by now a basic sense of composition and structure.

So I'm looking for authentic teenager doodles. Blue ballpoint pen on regular typing paper or whatever. Doodles that look like a high schooler's random notebook covers by the end of the year. If they have the name of Jeremy's band Goat Cheese Pizza in there, all the better.

If you send me something cool, I'll send you something cool.

College Maze

Name Dropping

The Enquirer had a little party last evening for those employees who contributed to the Fine Arts Fund campaign at the Leadership level. As you may have seen in an earlier post, I did a print for the FAF campaign that I signed and personalized for all the Leadership givers in the city, over 1000 (I got blisters on my fingers!!) so my wife and I got to schmooze at McCormick and Schmick's private party room overlooking the square with the invited guests and celebs.

We immediately found ourselves talking with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. This is my second time meeting the coach and I'm still unable to say anything intelligent in his presence. Suzanne and Marvin, on the other hand, share a vibe and they talked and talked about college shopping, family time and whether a teenager should have a new or used car (they both agreed -- used). I imagine it's a relief for a guy like Marvin, two days after the draft, to have a conversation about anything non-football. Meanwhile, I tried very hard to not be the guy at the party who asks all the buffoonish questions (see recent post).

By the way, I wondered all the while what the coach thought of my cartoon of him from that morning's Enquirer and silently congratulated him for not making it the topic of discussion. Turns out there was a good reason: he hadn't seen it.
