On June 19, 1978, Garfield the Cat appeared in comic strips for the first time. The adventures of this lazy lasagna-loving cat and his friends has since thrilled and delighted audiences worldwide. Garfield was created by Muncie, Indiana artist Jim Davis and is licensed by his company Paws, Inc., located just outside the city. Since then, Garfield has reached over 111 countries and appears in 2,100 newspapers – making it the most widely syndicated comic in the world. The illustration process, from rough to blue line drawings, inking, and coloring, will be showcased in this special exhibition. Original sketches and drawings, including final comic strips, calendars, stuffed animals, and various products, will be on display.
