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.

Jim, do you color your own editorial cartoons and Zits?

BorgFan, I color my own editorial cartoons and colored Zits myself for the first eight or so years. Then the syndicate wanted even the daily strips in color, prompting me to look for some help.

Benjamin Peters-Keirn (Mike Peters' son-in-law) now colors Zits. We work together on a color scheme when I have a vision, but more and more often I turn it over to him. Benjamin has the bonus ability of being able to read my mind, so I only infrequently ask for changes before okaying the final version.

Others have asked about coloring. I scan the original in two pieces on my itty bitty office scanner, then piece them together. I color using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. I file everything digitally.
