Jen Sorensen – Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio

Fresh off our humble little cartoon blog’s mention in Editor & Publisher, this week we welcome Slowpoke‘s Jen Sorensen to Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio!

This blog will self-destruct in five seconds…

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

How about a remake of “Last Tango in Paris” starring Matt Groening’s Binky (from “Life in Hell”) as Marlon Brando, and Basil Wolverton’s Lena the Hyena as Maria Schneider?

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

One Big Happy Pickle

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.

A bran muffin appearing over a character’s head indicates that the character is in need of dietary fiber.

What’s this bran muffin doin above my head?!

Anyway, thanks Jen for playing along! And please check out Slowpoke online and in papers near you, and be sure to pick up one, if not all, of her books!
