So…according to Wikipedia, I’m not a reliable source on my own work?
“Bob is patterned after Richard Nixon, and is drawn to resemble Nixon.”
This is an example of why one shouldn’t depend on Wikipedia for accurate information. As has been explained here many times over the past 20 years, Bob is NOT patterned after Nixon. I patterned him after my favorite character actor, Dabney Coleman (note the mustache on Bob), not just in appearance but in his sharp demeanor. Dabney Coleman does bears a resemblance to Nixon, so much so that he has played the part of Nixon in movies.
So if anyone knows how to correct this on Wikipedia (I haven’t looked at it in years and don’t know how it works), I would greatly appreciate doing so.

I hope this doesn’t disappoint people here making references to stuff in Doctor Who, but I never watched the show and really don’t know what these things are mentioned by so many today.
While Walt Kelly’s artwork was inspirational growing up, my real influence in comic art was Mort Drucker.
No, but I did have to identify the cilantro and kale to him.
Not kidding, I just bought some tomatillos yesterday. I usually have to tell the clerk at the checkout what they are.
