Nick Mockoviak - Garfield

2011.11.05 Wild Pig Comic Con, Somerset, NJ

Nick Mockoviak is a comic illustrator drawing all of the usual comic characters, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, Joker, Frankenstein, as well as turning convention guests into zombies. He zombified my son Matt a while back, as can be seen on Matt's page.

While reading Nick's bio on his Deviant Art page, I noted he was a fan of Garfield. Nick also said Garfield was the reason he went into drawing. With the recent release of the Garfield stamp by the USPS, I thought I would offer Nick the chance to draw Garfield any way he wanted. Nick jumped at the opportunity, and created FrankenGarfield...

Garfield cover sent to Jim Davis, and was returned with his signature...

Garfield, an orange tabby cat, was created by Jim Davis and first appeared on  June 19, 1978, following the lives of Garfield, his owner Jon Arbuckle, and Jon's dog Odie. Garfield has become on e of the most popular comic characters appearing in newspapers, television shows, movies, greeting cards, video games...
