Creating comics featuring his original characters since 1982, Dale is a Memphis-basedartist, writer, & publisher. He’s best known for a comic you’ve probably never heard of, Watusi the Talking Dog; fortunately, you can rectify that at www.watusithetalkingdog.com. Inspired by Tim Corrigan and the small press scene of the mid-80s, Dale still enjoys self-publishing his comics. Crafting the finished form of a project is as much a part of his artistic process as the words or the pictures. In addition to his self-published work, Dale has had comics published in anthologies across the country.
Greg began his cartooning career at fourteen, drawing a weekly comic strip for the Jackson Banner, which shut its doors six weeks later. At sixteen he drew caricatures of guests at Nashville’s theme park Opryland, which then shut down to become a mall. At twenty-two, he took a graphic design degree from Memphis State University, which then changed its name. Leaving this trail of destruction, he went into Advertising- an industry that rightly deserves a good kneecapping. Discovering that Advertising was some kind of zombie immortal horror, he returned to his first love: Newspaper comic strips. And you see where that’s led. He’s also done editorial cartooning and comic books, so keep an eye on those poor souls. These days, he cartoons in books, and corporate training presentations, and even still draws caricatures at events because everyone needs to get out of the studio now and again.
Jim is a freelance cartoonist who has created a number of comic strips over the years, including LI’L E: The World’s Youngest Elvis Impersonator. He has provided illustrations for Scholastic Teaching Resources, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers, and Voices of the South Theatre Company. He is currently producing several packages of clip art for his Teachers pay Teachers online store: PALMER’S PIX.
