Southwest Journal Interview

Here’s an interview I did recently for our neighborhood paper the Southwest Journal focusing on how I reference local locations for use in the Sally Forth strip.
On the Comics Page, Scenes from Minneapolis

For the blog post where I used Digs Studio for reference, check out:
Scouting Locations – Small Wonders Gift Shop

For Comic College check out:
Comic Book College is Moving

Other locations around Minneapolis I’ve used include…

Hillary’s school – based on Washburn High School

Augsburg College’s Campus

The Riverview Theater

Uptown – right where Magers and Quinn is located.

That’s all the locations I could think of off the top of my head. If I remember more I’ll be sure to post them.


Unabashed plug time!

A yearlong subscription to all of King Features’ comics (new and vintage) plus ten years worth of archives for every single strip is a pittance at $19.99 a year. Unsure? Try a 7 day trial subscription for free.
