Creator profile: Jeffrey Brown

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin talks with cartoonist Jeffrey Brown about Clumsy, Unlikely, and distancing himself from his "broken-hearted guy" persona:

"I think the broken-hearted aspect is certainly given too much emphasis by many readers. In Clumsy especially, I was entertaining myself, and drawing that book was mostly fun and laughs for me. I guess I'm trying to get away from writing about girls so much, but at the same time, most artists tend to be obsessive and make art about what they're obsessed with, and I guess I'm a little obsessed with girls. Or at least the idea of having a girlfriend. Or maybe it's just my libido."
