Bob Weber Sr. and I rented a car in Tucson, AZ on Sept. 7, 2007 and drove to San Diego and after a couple calls, we were graciously invited to Jim and Bernita's 'place' . . a truly lovely home and studio in Encinitas.
Photo L to R . . ( In Jim's studio ) Jim Whiting, ( President, Southern California Cartoonists' Society ), George Gladir, ( Creator of SABRINA, THE TEEN-AGE WITCH ), Suzanne Lemieux Wilson, ( wife of the late renowned cartoonist, Rowland Wilson ), Suzanne's own fantastic creative art was ALL OVER the the animated classic, ANASTASIA . Top row on right is Bob Weber Sr., who has Molly & Moose with King Features Syndicate and Slylock Fox & Comics for Kids also syndicated by King with over 415 Newspapers. Slylock Fox is a popular comic recently picked up by The Los Angeles Times. Bob Weber Jr. is the creator and both Bobs produce the feature.
Important trivia point: The drawing table with built-in light box you see behind Jim and George was originally the one that belonged to SAM COBEAN ! Sam was Jim's mentor and Mrs. Cobean generously passed it on to Jim after Sam's sudden and tragic death.
