Interviewed: Pickles creator Brian Crane

The always interesting and entertaining podcast interviewer Tom Racine talks to Pickles creator Brian Crane this week.

Here’s the description of the show:

Brian Crane, writer and artist of the great strip “Pickles” is with me today to talk about his road to syndication, how he goes about his daily business of bringing the funny old people to life, and what it’s like to slowly be creeping on the age of his protagonists! “Pickles” is a constant top-10 favorite around the country and is truly one of those strips that sneaks under your radar. You think it’s going to be a feel-good sappy strip about elderly people, and it turns out to have one of the sharpest edges out there. It’s one of my favorites, and it’s been around 21 years for good reason!

I think I missed mention that Tom also talked to Jonathan Mahood about his long-time comic Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog that was recently picked up for syndication.

that was a great interview with Brian! I try and take information from all the great cartoonists like Brian. A wonderful inspiration Brian is for all of us cartoonists!

Thanks for the shout out, Alan. Brian fits that perfect mold of the gentleman cartoonist that I’ve come to know. Just the nicest guy you could ask for, and “Pickles” is definitely one of my top 5 comics out there.

And I had a great time with Jonathan Mahood, too…so great to talk to these amazing artists.
