Dr. Dallis, a psychiatrist who also created the comic strips Rex Morgan, M.D. and Apartment 3-G, used the pen name "Paul Nichols" when writing the strip. Shortly before his death, he retired in 1990, turning over the scripting chores to his assistant Woody Wilson. The strip's first artist was Dan Heilman, who left in 1965 and was replaced by Harold LeDoux. LeDoux's last strip ran on May 28, 2006.
Comic book artist Eduardo Barreto replaced him; his first strip appeared the following day. Barreto suffered a near-fatal injury in a car accident in Uruguay shortly afterwards and was unable to illustrate the strips for December 2006; as a result, Rex Morgan artist Graham Nolan did the strip for a week, and John Heebink took over the following week. Barreto resumed drawing the strip in January 2007. Barreto fell "gravely ill" from meningitis in early February 2010 and had to withdraw from drawing the strip for "the foreseeable future". Barreto's son Diego drew the strip for the week beginning February 8, 2010, with John Heebnik stepping in again on February 15, 2010, for four weeks while Barreto recovered.
Artist Mike Manley assumed the art duties permanently beginning with the four weeks beginning with the March 15, 2010, strips. Initially announced as another fill-in artist, Manley revealed that he'd been given the ongoing assignment on February 23, 2010. The syndicate held a "two-man tryout" with Manley being offered the full-time job over Heebnik after Manley turned in his second week of art for the strip.

Famous quotes containing the word artists:
“... artists were intended to be an ornament to society. As a society in themselves they are unthinkable.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
“The attorneys defending a criminal are rarely artists enough to turn the beautiful ghastliness of his deed to his advantage.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“The artistic temperament is a disease that affects amateurs.... Artists of a large and wholesome vitality get rid of their art easily, as they breathe easily or perspire easily. But in artists of less force, the thing becomes a pressure, and produces a definite pain, which is called the artistic temperament.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
