Gary Larson net worth: Gary Larson is an American cartoonist with an estimated net worth of $50 million dollars. Born in Tacoma, Washington, Gary Larson graduated from Washington State University, where he majored in Communications. While working at a music store, he took some time off and drew some cartoons. He submitted them 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 even spawned two animated specials. He retired in 1995, and has largely discontinued many of the merchandise related to the "Far Side" franchise. He has occasionally drawn charity cartoons for various groups, and he published the short illustrated New York Times bestseller, "There's a Hair in My Dirt!: A Worm's Story", in 1998.
Gary Larson (born August 14, 1950) is the creator of The Far Side, a single-panel cartoon series that was syndicated internationally to newspapers for 15 years. The series ended with Larson's retirement on January 1, 1995. His 23 books of collected cartoons have combined sales of more than 45 million copies.
Larson grew up in University Place, Washington, in suburban Tacoma. His parents are Verner, a car salesman, and Doris, a secretary. He is a graduate of Curtis Senior High School in University Place. He graduated from Washington State University in Pullman with a degree in communications.
Larson credits his older brother, Dan, for his "paranoid" sense of humor. Dan pulled countless pranks on Gary, taking advantage of his phobia of monsters under the bed by waiting in the closet for the right moment to pounce. He is also credited for nurturing Gary's love of science. They caught animals in Puget Sound and placed them in terrariums in the basement, even making a small desert ecosystem. Dan Larson died of a myocardial infarction in 1989.
According to Larson in his anthology, The Prehistory of the Far Side, he was working in a music store when he took a few days off, after finally realizing how much he hated his job. During that time, he decided to try cartooning and drew six cartoons and submitted them to Pacific Search (now Pacific Northwest Magazine), a Seattle-based magazine. After contributing to another local Seattle paper, in 1979 Larson submitted his work to The Seattle Times. Under the title Nature???s Way, his work was published weekly next to the Junior Jumble.
To supplement his income, Larson worked for the Humane Society. Larson soon decided he could increase his income from cartooning by selling his strip to another newspaper. Taking his vacation in San Francisco, Larson pitched his work to the San Francisco Chronicle. To Larson???s surprise, the Chronicle bought the strip and promoted it for syndication, renaming it The Far Side. This occur
