I can’t explain how much Peanuts has influenced nearly every sketch, doodle, and comic I’ve ever done. And I don’t know where to start explaining why and how. Anyone else who’s influenced by Charles M. Schulz would probably name the same reasons from the innocent charm, the characters, to their cute round heads. What I really admire about the comic strip is its timelessness. Even after Schulz has passed on, daily and Sunday papers are never without Classic Peanuts strips. No matter how old the strip is or how long it’s been since I’ve read one, it’ll still be funny and I’ll still genuinely enjoy it.
