Late Cartoonist Phil Frank’s Birthday to Be Celebrated in Sausalito

By: E&P Staff

Sausalito tomorrow will hold a birthday tribute for late cartoonist Phil Frank, who lived in that California town.

The “Farley” creator, who died last September of brain cancer, would have been 65 yesterday.

Frank did the syndicated “Travels With Farley” from 1975 to 1985 before turning the comic into the local “Farley” for the last 22 years of his life. The daily strip ran in the San Francisco Chronicle. Also, Frank co-authored “The Elderberries” comic distributed by Universal Press Syndicate.

The Sausalito celebration was mentioned today on Tom Spurgeon’s Comics Reporter blog.

Also, as E&P reported March 11, the Cartoon Art Museum of San Francisco will hold an April 6-Sept. 14 exhibit spotlighting Frank and his work.
