Toothpaste For Dinner on the cover?

Postby Shipley » Thu Jan 31, 2008 2:25 pm

the cartoon on the cover looks like it has characters copied directly from Toothpaste For Dinner. I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure I own a t-shirt with the red fella on it. I don't see a cartoonist credited for the work, so am I to assume Isthmus art department got lazy and copied work of a (brilliant) web comic artist?

Hi all,
This is Carolyn, the AD. Just wanted to make sure everyone knows the art is copyrighted work by Drew, the author of Toothpaste For Dinner. And he is being paid. Hope that clears things up! c

I am an american idol?
Cool.
Draw Garfield? Wouldnt want to.
But I can draw that turtle pirate.
And I'm willing to redesign that horrible Foronward shirt you guys snatched out from under us.

Kenneth: stop teasing.
Hire me.
I know your frequency.
