Universal Uclick Associates Step In for Scott Adams

Monday, March 7, 2016

Dilbert creator Scott Adams is looking to his syndicate, Universal Uclick (UU), to lend a helping hand while he rests his own (drawing) hand.

“I haven’t taken a day off from work for about three years, and my drawing hand needed some rest and rehab. So I asked my ‘coworkers’ (at Universal Uclick) to fill in for me while I try to figure out how vacations work (The alternative was running repeats.),” Adams wrote on his blog.   

For the next six weeks, UU “guest artists” will illustrate Dilbert, which appears in more than 2,000 newspapers worldwide. Adams will continue to write the comic strip, and UU associates are free to draw the comic installments in their own style, or mimic Adams’ artwork. 

The first week, which began on February 29, was drawn by UU President John Glynn. View the guest strips starting here.
