The Far Side Strikes Back!

July 7, 2020

It’s been only six months since Gary Larson’s The Far Side cartoons reappeared (legally, unlike all the other copies) on the web, a fact we previously mentioned here and here. The millions of illegal cartoons already on the web was part of the reason Larson started his own site.

The other reason is that he bought a digital tablet with a good drawing program, tried it out, and rediscovered his love of cartooning. As he put it today, in his introduction to some NEW CARTOONS (Ta Da!):

So a few years ago—finally fed up with my once-loyal but now reliably traitorous pen—I decided to try a digital tablet. I knew nothing about these devices but hoped it would just get me through my annual Christmas card ordeal. I got one, fired it up, and lo and behold, something totally unexpected happened: within moments, I was having fun drawing again. I was stunned at all the tools the thing offered, all the creative potential it contained. I simply had no idea how far these things had evolved. Perhaps fittingly, the first thing I drew was a caveman.

So check out the start of his new stuff.

I assume his old cartoons will continue on The Daily Dose, as well as access to the new. And put a permanent link to them on your computer, pad or phone fer cryin’ out loud!
