Pulitzer Prize-Winning Darrin Bell Interviewed


Your life is extremely busy these days, with the production of both editorial cartoons and two daily comic strips. Which is more difficult—the editorial work or the strips?

I’d have to say the editorial cartoons. It’s almost performance art—something breaks on the news, and you only have a few hours to respond, to make deadline. I also tend to work up to the deadline with the strips, but there’s not as much real pressure. I have ideas bouncing around in my head for a week or so, and they gradually crystallize. Then I typically sit down and draw an entire week’s worth of strips in one day.

That explains Darrin’s ability to remain current with his syndicated Candorville strip.

Editorial cartoonist and comic strip creator Darrin Bell is interviewed by California magazine.
