Today’s Birthday: Garfield

It's June 19, and on this date in 1978, the comic strip Garfield first appeared in newspapers.  Therefore, today is Garfield's 34th birthday, and today's comic strip celebrates that occasion.  You can learn more about Garfield and see today's strip by going here, and if you like to draw cats and other creatures, consider taking our Art: Drawing Animals course.  We can't promise you'll have the giant commercial success Jim Davis has had while drawing Garfield, Jon and Odie, but we can assure you that you'll earn a half-unit of credit toward your high school diploma when you complete the course.
