Brooke McEldowney – Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio

This week’s Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio guest is 9 Chickwwed Lane and Pigborn creator, Brooke McEldowney!

Let’s get right to the questions!

1) If you were to cast a movie entirely with cartoon characters, what movie would it be and who would star in it?

Pibgorn. It would star Claudia Black as Drusilla, Shawnee Smith as Pibgorn, and I think I could be convinced to play Geoff.

2) You’re a syndicate editor launching a new comic strip. What’s the worst possible title you can think of?

My Favorite Vasectomy.

3) A light bulb over a cartoon’s head signifies an idea, while a string of random characters denotes swearing. Invent a new cartooning icon and what it means.

An equal sign, which would designate an abrupt shift from a Nietschean weltanschauung to something a little more Kierkegaardian.

Thanks a bunch Brooke! And stay tuned for my new strip “My Favorite Vasectomy” coming soon to a newspaper near you!

See you next week for our next installment of Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio!

  1. Concerning Pibgorn, you involve demons from Hell and fairies from Earth with humans. Have you considered introducing a representative of Heaven? Not for religious reasons, but as a matter of balance.

  2. You might edit you website — the strip is "Pibgorn," not "Pigborn." Kind of embarassing when you misspell the new strip of a featured artist…

  3. You know, three years later, I could go back, but what about all those people searching for "Pigborn"?! Should I alienate them just for the sake of accuracy? I think not.

    But thanks for the heads up…

  4. Are you sure it's not Bigporn?

    Seriously, does anyone know why he named the character after a Welsh instrument?
