Gary Larson is an American cartoonist with the estimated net worth of $50 million dollars. While working at a music store, he took some time off and drew some cartoons. He submitted $50 to a magazine based in Seattle. This led to another magazine submission, and then a weekly cartoon called, “Nature’s Way”, for The Seattle Times. He was subsequently picked up by the San Francisco Chronicle, and “The Far Side” was born. Mr. Larson would continue to churn out “Far Side” cartoons for the next fifteen years. His work would also be featured in multiple anthologies, on gift cards and t-shirts, and also spawned two animated specials.
