Cartoonists in the news: Tony Carrillo

Arizona daily star catches up with Tony Carrillo.

“I never feel that I’m not at work. Even when I’m out with friends, hanging out, I’m always thinking ‘Could that idea be a comic?’ ” he said. “I’ll always keep a notebook with me, jotting ideas down.”

Naturally, Carrillo has less freedom doing “F Minus” in dozens of daily newspapers than at his college paper. On his MySpace page ( comics), he shares his first “professional” comic strip to be rejected, depicting a man drinking alone in a room with a sign saying “Alcoholics Autonomous.” Ultimately, though, he said it’s been a smooth transition.

“The thing I try to remember is not to censor myself, and just let the editors do it,” he said.
