MAKE Volume 27 Roy Doty Illustration

Everybody makes mistakes, and we’re no exception. After each issue has gone to print, we usually find out we’ve made a mistake or two and post our errata on the magazine volume page and in the Letters section of the subsequent issue as “MAKE: Amends.” For our current volume, we just got perhaps the best errata in 27 volumes:

We incorrectly labeled Roy Doty’s Eureka comic strip “Phffft!” The correct title is “Zippp!” We apologize to Roy, and to fans of onomatopoeia everywhere.

Roy Doty‘s Eureka comic frames have appeared sprinkled throughout the Toolbox section of each issue since Volume 25. Before then, Roy had illustrated the Aha! Puzzle This column for 19 volumes of MAKE (05 thru 23). We absolutely love Roy’s illustrations, and hope to see many more of his works. He has been an illustrator since 1946. No newcomer to the DIY scene, his “Wordless Workshop” ran as a syndicated series for 50 years.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    I *loved* Wordless Workshop!  I’m happy to see Doty is still drawing. I always admired his ability to reduce a clever idea to a series of cartoon panels.  I recognized the style in the above drawing before I saw his signature.  Thanks for starting my day off right!

  4. I loved his recent cookie jar alarm using a singing birthday card.  Brilliant!

    How’d she clip it on the zipper when she can’t even reach it?

    1. Arno Brosi says:

      She could reach it,just not zip it up ;)

      Extra length of the clip was just enough :-)

    I loved Wordless Workshop and I’m surprised and saddened that you can’t buy a collection of them.
