Innovation and Tech Today has a short Q&A with Jim Davis on how he got his start in the business and how he’s created the comic for almost 40 years.
In college, I majored in art and business (I took the business classes to appease my parents), and shortly after college, I got a job in advertising. Then I heard about a cartoonist in my hometown who needed an assistant. I went to work for T.K. Ryan (Tumbleweeds) and from that point on, making a comic strip was imprinted on my DNA.
