Summer of ’98 – Sasquatch headshots. I don’t think I decided to call the strip Zazkwatch until shortly before I drew the first episode. If I were to do the strip now I’d call it Skook. Shorter and punchier. Plus, many readers didn’t seem to realize that the character was a bigfoot. Just because I read everything I could get my hands on about sasquatch as a kid doesn’t mean most of the rest of the world had heard of the creature. Even here in the Pacific Northwest.
