Leigh Rubin – Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio

This week ITCS is thrilled to have Leigh Rubin of the comic panel “Rubes” answering our questions!

Let’s get down to it, shall we?

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

It would be a live action flick starring Bush and Kerry. I’d call it Looney Tunes… Oh wait, I think it’s already been done.

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

Don’t tempt me with a question like this… My goodness there are so many possibilities. How about “Filler” or “This Space for Rent”

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.

I’m not sure how to do this, but how about some sort of symbol that subliminally commands newspaper editors: “BUY THIS STRIP!”

Thanks Leigh! I’d love to see Bush and Kerry doing Looney Tunes – “Democrat season!” “Republican season!” “Democrat season!” “Republican season!”

Make sure you check out “Rubes”! And be sure to pick up the 2005 Rubes calendar as well as any of the wonderful Rubes books!
