Molly and the Bear
“Comic strips have been my go-to medium for artistic expression since I was a tiny tot barely able to hold a pencil. I find immense satisfaction in the careful crafting of a joke, the staging of the panels, the angst of the good days/bad days of drawing, and the high-risk thrill of inking. See, like the comic strip artists that fired my imagination as a child, I draw and ink Molly and the Bear live on Bristol board. I feel a deep connection to the artists of the past as well as the readers of today, but mostly I am attached to these characters who have been a part of my daily life for almost 2 decades. A Saturday afternoon, a Bear and a Windsor Newton brush full of ink. Heaven.” – Bob Scott
