New Stuff from The Far Side 7/8/2020

Gary Larson, ‘New Stuff’:

The “New Stuff” that you’ll see here is the result of my journey into the world of digital art. Believe me, this has been a bit of a learning curve for me. I hail from a world of pen and ink, and suddenly I was feeling like I was sitting at the controls of a 747. (True, I don’t get out much.) But as overwhelmed as I was, there was still something familiar there—a sense of adventure. That had always been at the core of what I enjoyed most when I was drawing The Far Side, that sense of exploring, reaching for something, taking some risks, sometimes hitting a home run and sometimes coming up with “Cow tools.” (Let’s not get into that.)

Being the geek I am, I want to know about his digital drawing setup, but also being the geek I am, I was happy to hear that this new digital medium has rekindled that creative flame for him.
