Tony Murphy to end It’s All About You
It’s All About You creator Tony Murphy has decide to end his strip citing lack of client papers. Tony’s strip has been in syndication for almost three years but dates back to 2004 when it ran in the Metro in New York and Boston. When asked what he enjoyed most about the strip he said, “I also have to say that I’m very proud of the work I did. It was a great creative challenge and it was fun being surprised by what I came up with on deadline.”
As to the future, Tony has not ruled out doing something with the strip at a later date. After three years of the syndication grind, he’s happy to relax and enjoy… sleeping. “This is sort of a joke and at the same time very true. Since I decided to quit the strip I have been amazed at how tired I am, and was, and my body is slowly readjusting to not having work due all the time.”
Tony is still working hard his monthly coffee shop newspaper, Coffee Talk. His sixth issue hit the stands two weeks ago and he reports that he’s gaining traction with advertisers in the Brooklyn area. He’s also added a new section called “Comic Strip Showcase,” more puzzles along with the normal strip line-up.
