Creator of "Foxtrot"
Foxtrot first began running in papers on April 10, 1988 when Bill Amend was 25.
Bill Amend was born in 1962. He is married and has one boy and one girl. Bill always wanted to make movies, not cartoons, when he was a kid.
He says that he never really took drawing lessons besides what required for school. Bill's bachelor's is actually in physics from Amherst College.
To get his ideas, Bill has to think very hard and that he has not found any secret formula to making a comic. For him it takes 3 to 4 hours to pencil and ink his daily strip, while it takes 8 to 10 for the Sunday strips.
