Jim Davis likes Garfield Minus Garfield

I’ve always like Garfield Minus Garfield; I thought it was innovative and genuinely a unique concept. But I must say, I never thought it’d get this famous. The following excerpt is from the Washington Post article that features Jim Davis:

One of Walsh’s occasional readers is Davis, who heard about the site a few months ago. The cartoonist calls the work “an inspired thing to do” and wishes to thank Walsh for enabling him to see another side of “Garfield.”

“Some of the strips were slappers: ‘Oh, I could have left that out.’ It would have been funnier,” Davis says.

Walsh may start having trouble finding the lonely, depressed Jon for his comics. Davis recently created a girlfriend for the longtime bachelor.

“How much humor can you get out of someone’s unhappiness?” Davis muses. “Day after day for so many years — it was getting to me, too.”

Good job, Travors. If anything beside haven drawn attention to yourself and G-G, you’ve certainly attracted at least some attention towards Tumblr in the process.
