A Conversation with Brian Crane

April 16 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Brian Crane is an American cartoonist who created Pickles, a comic strip featuring a retired couple, Earl and Opal Pickles, their family, and their family pets, Muffin (cat) and Roscoe (dog). After a career in graphic design, Brian revived his childhood dream of being a comic strip artist, eventually creating Pickles, which has seen success since its creation in 1990. Pickles was syndicated by The Washington Post Writers Group in 1990, and today appears in nearly 1,000 newspapers around the world. In 2001 it was awarded the prize for Best Comic Strip by the National Cartoonist Society. In 2013 he won the Reuben award for cartoonist of the year from the National Cartoonists Society. Crane was inducted into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame in 2022. Pickles is created  by hand from a studio in his home in Sparks, Nevada. His daughter Emily colors the daily and Sunday strips for him.
