Welcome to yet another Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio! Today we welcome wonderfully funny cartoonist Stephanie Piro whose Six Chix and Fair Game cartoons appear in publications nation-wide!
What’chu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?
1) If you were to cast a movie entirely with cartoon characters, what movie would it be and who would star in it?
I would do a movie version of “Sex in the City” with Betty and Veronica , Katie Keen, Aunt Fritzi Ritz and Brenda Starr (ok, so there’s 5 instead of 4. I had to get Brenda Starr in there). These hot babes would plow through some x-rated action and spicy dialogue with a variety of male comic super stars, including Archie, Lil’ Abner, Beetle Baily, Mark Trail, Superman and Basil St. John as Mr. Big. Cameos by Blondie and Lana Lang. How could this miss!
2) You’re a syndicate editor launching a new comic strip. What’s the worst possible title you can think of?
“Bangs” the story of a hairdresser and the customers who frequent her shop. Wait a minute, I submitted that idea once. Then I changed it to “Charmers”. It was still rejected. Maybe I should go back to “Bangs”??
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 champagne glass makes a nice icon. It would appear over a character’s head whenever she decides to go to a bar or club. A lawnmower could appear over someone’s head who is hard at work. Actually, now I love these icons! I want to use them! Feel free to make them your own!
I have to admit, I’ve always had a thing for Brenda Starr, so this “Sex in the City” sounds great to me!
Thanks so much, Stephanie, for playing along and giving some really great answers!
