The Nutz family is definitely not the Cleavers, the Waltons or the Bradys. But you'll undoubtedly recognize them anyway. Most likely, they're a lot like the family you grew up in... where the battle for the last chicken leg is comparable to the Battle of Bull Run, sibling rivalry is putting it mildly, and family values usually refers to a coupon book. Soup to Nutz by Rick Stromoski stars hard-working Roy Nutz, his loving wife Pat, and their battling brood - sons Roy-boy and Andrew, daughter Babs and rambunctious dog Rosco. Stromoski is the seventh in a family of 12 children. Growing up in such a large family has given him an especially developed sense of humor that he has expressed through drawing from the moment he could pick up a pencil. A self-taught cartoonist and humorous illustrator, his work has appeared in national magazines, children's and humor books, newspapers, licensed products, national advertising and network television. Stromoski's greeting cards have become best-sellers for several major companies. He has won four Louie Awards for outstanding greeting card design. He has been nominated for his illustration work by the National Cartoonists Society 12 times and was awarded the Reuben division award for best greeting cards in 1995 and 1998, and for magazine gag cartoons in 1999. An NCS board member since 1997, he was elected president in 2005.
