Guy Gilchrist has been an artist and writer of world renown for nearly two decades. Besides writing children's book, he is the syndicated cartoonist of Nancy, The Muppets and The Rock Channel comic strips. His work has been shown in newspapers and museums worldwide and is permanently enshrined in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Guy is on the Board Of Directors of the Newspaper Features Council, a member of the National Cartoonists Society and a member of Artists & Writers.
Guy Gilchrist was born on January 30th, 1957 in Hartford, Connecticut. Raised in the Farmington Valley, he learned to draw cartoons from lessons from his mother, Louise, and by copying the pictures from Walt Disney Golden Books & Dr. Seuss stories. A self-taught cartoonist and writer, Gilchrist sold his first cartoons on shirt cardboard clothes-pinned to a rope outside his father's shop.
At the age of 8 years old, Guy knew he would be an artist and a writer when he grew up. On a field trip with his class, Guy met Theodore Geisel who's pen name was Dr. Seuss. What Dr. Seuss told Guy had a great impact on him. "Dreaming a dream is okay, but if you don't get up and do something about it, all you'll have is a pretty little dream. If you work hard at your dream, then you can be anything you want to be," is what Dr. Seuss told to a room full of children. From that moment on, Guy knew he could be an artist. "Dream It ... Then Do It!" is the philosophy Guy always passes on to all the children at HIS appearances.
"I got a rejection letter from Mad Magazine when I was sixteen. It told me the "cartoons were one step away from reality"...and I was "too many steps away". It told me to "do life drawing, continuous line drawing, gesture drawing...all real subjects". I was heartbroken over the rejection, but it was such a blessing to me. I started drawing REAL! And I've never stopped. Never stopped learning. Never stopped seeing...and getting my hand to draw what the eye sees...or...what my imagination sees."
After high school, Guy started his children's book and cartoon career with Weekly Reader Books. Then, in 1980, he would audition for a job that would change his life: Jim Henson's Muppets! In 1981, Guy, with his brother Brad as co-writer, created The Muppets comic strip for the late, great Jim Henson. The Muppets comic strip was printed world-wide in over 660 newspapers daily from 1981 - 1986. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, invited Guy to be guest of honor at the Easter At The White House celebration. It was later that week that Guy's Muppets art work was permanently enshrined in the Smithsonian Institute. Also in 1984, Guy Gilchrist, his brother Brad, and syndicated cartoonist Greg Walker (Beetle Bailey) created The Rock Channel comic for Cowles Syndicate.
In 1992, Guy created the first of four sports logos for minor league teams. The Portland Sea Dogs became the best selling logo in the history of minor league baseball. Since 1992, he has created logos for the Norwich Navigators, The New Britain Rock Cats and the Binghamton Mets. He also created the S-Pulse logo for Sony Creative Japanese Soccer Team.
In 1996, Guy experimented with a new inspirational feature called Angelspeake. Also that year, was the introduction of the Positivenergy! gift line of inspirational items from Russ Berrie, Inc.
And then, came SCREAMS!! This cartoon is for teenagers and adults and the monster lover in all of us. Screams and Angelspeake are both featured at Gilchrist Studios Online along with all the comics and features that Guy draws and writes.
In 1997, Guy and his wife Angie began their own international publishing company. Gilchrist Publishing began with two books of poems and pictures written for children of all ages. His newest book is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Night Lights & Pillow Fights: A Trip To Storyland and is called Night Lights & Pillow Fights II: The Box Set. Guy's most recent venture is the Night Lights syndicated feature which appears in newspapers nationwide and on the Internet. It is a full color children's page consisting of illustrated verse, games and comics.
Guy enjoys writing and drawing Nancy, which appears in over 390 newspapers worldwide, distributed by United Media Syndicate. "As a kid, I opened The Hartford Times every day and Nancy is the first strip I remember," recalls Guy, who with his brother Brad returned Nancy to its legendary style September 3rd, 1995. Today, with millons reading Nancy and so many more enjoying his children's book, Guy is enjoying the popularity that comes from so many years of doing the work he truly loves.
Guy lists as his greatest accomplishments: his daughter Lauren (19), his son Garrett (17), his step daughter Julia (9), and convincing Angie Brown to marry him. Guy enjoys a good day of bad golf, cheering on The Boston Red Sox and the Washington Redskins, writing hillbilly songs, singing ol' Hank & Elvis tunes, and most of all, looking forward to the mystery and magic of tomorrow.
