Phil Frank (1943-2007), was an American cartoonist best known as the creator of the San Francisco-based comic strip Farley and the artist on nationally syndicated comic strip The Elderberries (written by Joe Troise). Frank and Troise worked together on other comic strip projects, including Chateau Defeat (published in the Wine Spectator) and Miles to Go, plus Nigel Shiftright, Automotive Anachronism and the eponymous Frank and Troise, both for Road & Track magazine. Frank and Troise also collaborated on a series of Teletoons for Network World magazine.
Frank started cartooning at Michigan State University first by creating illustrations on classmates jackets and then with the university newspaper for $5 a strip. (source: Wikipedia.org)
