About the Author: Darby Conley

Darby Conley is an American cartoonist best known for the popular comic strip Get Fuzzy.

Conley was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1970, and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee.

While in high school in 1986, he won a student cartooning competition. During his Senior Year at Doyle High School (now South-Doyle High School) in Knoxville, Conley was voted 'Most Talented' by his graduating class. He attended Amherst College, where he studied Fine Arts, drew cartoons for the student newspaper, played rugby, and was a member of an all-male, jazz-influenced a cappella group, the Zumbyes. (Fellow cartoonist alumni of Amherst include FoxTrot creator Bill Amend and the late John Cullen Murphy of Prince Valiant fame.)

Like Rob Wilco, the human protagonist in Get Fuzzy, Conley is an enthusiastic rugby union fan, playing during college and sustaining several injuries that failed to diminish his passion for the sport.

Before becoming a cartoonist, Conley held a wide array of jobs: elementary school teacher, art director for a science museum, lifeguard, and bicycle repairman. This eclectic collection of professions is reminiscent of those held by Douglas Adams, whom Conley has mentioned as a comedic influence.

Conley, an animal rights activist and vegetarian, lives in Boston.

Premio Reuben 2002 a la mejor tira de prensa

A contrapelo es una tira de prensa escrita y dibujada por Darby Conley y protagonizada por Rob Wilco, empleado en una agencia de publicidad, y sus dos mascotas antropomórficas: su gato Bucky Katt y su perro Satchel Pooch. Las personalidades de las dos mascotas ofrecen un interesante contraste. Bucky es un siamés egoísta y un tanto demente y Satchel es un perro con un carácter amable y complaciente, sin ningún atisbo de maldad. Rob debe soportarlos o, mejor dicho, Rob y Satchel deben soportar el destructivo carácter de Bucky.

“Get Fuzzy es la mejor tira de cómic aparecida en los últimos años. Si aún no la has leído, deberías hacerlo”. Scott Adams. Creador de Dilberts

"Conley domina con elegancia la mecánica del gag y la ironía demoledora contenida en un máximo de tres viñetas." Yexus. El Diario Montañés
