It’s Hip To Be “A Dustin”

When Steve and I launched “Dustin” in 2010, we’d tell anyone who’d listen that, simply put, the strip is about a twenty-something who still lives with his parents.

Quite often, we’d hear more than a few people reply, “Oh! I have ‘a Dustin’ at home.”

Taking into account the economy of late, young adults living with their parents have become a growing trend for sure.  It’s interesting to note that when Steve first dreamed up the premise for “Dustin” in 2006, the economy had been blazing along with dot coms and housing bubbles for nearly a decade… sure, a few young people moved back home after college, but not as many as are forced to now — it was an odd sight in those days, and as Steve and I thought, good fodder for a comic strip.

Saturday Morning Muse — Conchy

From time to time Steve and I will blog on Saturdays about our great cartoon influences.  I’ll kick off our blog’s irregular-uncopyrighted feature with this short musing on a great muse of mine…

I grew up in a little town along the Space Coast of Florida called Satellite Beach in the 60s and 70s.  As a kid, I adored a little-known strip about a beachcomber named, “Conchy” (pron: KONK-ee).  “Conchy” was always one of my favorite comic strips and still is.  It was self-syndicated and ran in the daily color comics (rare then) of our local paper FLORIDA TODAY (called TODAY back then) from 1970 until 1977.
