After years of drawing comic strips for his school newspapers, Brian Anderson began pursuing his love of art professionally. His first cartoon, "The Town Crier," went over well with publishers -- but he knew it wasn't the one he wanted to devote his time to. Finally, inspired by his dog Sophie, he created the comic "Dog Eat Doug." The strip chronicles the misadventures of Sophie and a baby named Doug, as they get into trouble in and around the house.
After premiering online in 2005, "Dog Eat Doug" has enjoyed a steadily-growing fanbase.
