Benefiting St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters
Jerry Scott is an American cartoonist, co-creator of Baby Blues and co-creator of Zits. He started cartooning professionally in the mid-1970's by submitting gag cartoons to magazines, and he sold one from his first batch to the Saturday Evening Post. In 1983, Scott took over Nancy, which was created by Ernie Bushmiller (he eventually handed it over to Guy Gilchrist in the 1990s). He became friends with Rick Kirkman and they created Baby Blues, a comic based on family life with little children. Later, Scott and Jim Borgman collaborated to create Zits, which follows family life with a teenage son. Scott was still working on the last two strips as of 2012.
