Episode 152 – The Frank Page Interview (2 years later)


On this episode of Comics Coast To Coast we welcome back Frank Page, the creator of Bob The Squirrel and the recently launched Squirrelosophy, to talk comics, education and pets of cartoonists.

About Bob The Squirrel: (source: http://bobthesquirrel.com)

“this is about bob.  he’s a squirrel. a very loud and yet subtle squirrel.

Where do I begin?… probably at the beginning. My name is Frank Page—I am an illustrator and cartoonist in Central New York. Currently I am a graphic designer and editorial cartoonist at the Rome Daily Sentinel.

In the fall of 2001, I moved to Utica, NY. One saturday morning I was laying on the couch watching M*A*S*H and I happened to look out the window. What I saw would invariably change my life for better or for worse.
What I saw was a squirrel—kinda like when Bruce Wayne was trying to decide on what he should be and that pesky little bat came flying through his window. I didn’t decide that I wanted to become SQUIRRELMAN— bear with me.” – read more at Bob The Squirrel
