Chet Pickens


I created the candy gang characters at age 10,the characters represent the children I grew up with at that time.they were very sweet and people would often say,I began calling them the Candy Gang.I was inspired by the comic strips I read in the newspaper like Tiger,Broom Hilda,Quincy,Heathcliff,Garfirld,Fat albert and many more….I also learned alot fromwatching Charles Shultz.I began drawing my own back grounds for my stripswhich was the buildings in my neighborhood.In the beginning I didn’t have a story line but now in the recent years their story has been centered around my childhood
