About Lonnie Milsap
Cartoonist Lonnie Millsap was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Like most artists he began drawing early in life. One of his earliest artistic memories was getting into trouble at the age of four for drawing a life sized crayon Batman on his refrigerator and grey living room carpet. Initially, he didn’t get into trouble for the carpet Batman because of the way he strategically contorted his body over it. (His parents bought a new carpet a week later). While growing up Millsap drew cartoons in the borders of every paper he ever touched. His earliest artistic influences were Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Sergio Aragones (Mad Magazine) and Johnny Hart (Wizard of Id). As Millsap matured he was influenced by the likes of Gary Panter (Jimbo), Matt Groening (Simpsons, Life in Hell), Charlie Callahan and Gahan Wilson.
