Toothpaste for Dinner is a webcomic created by Drew. The comic was launched on January 1, 2002.[1]

A new drawing is posted every day at 12:01 AM, EST. Each comic features small, simple drawings, paired with short captions or dialogue. The style of humor on Toothpaste for Dinner encompasses surrealism, irony, social commentary, cynicism, and schadenfreude, among other sub-types of humor. Each cartoon is entirely self-contained (except in certain cases of a series, such as the horoscope series.)

Art[edit]

The art for Toothpaste for Dinner is drawn with ink on paper (Uni-Ball Micro pens and 300 lb. wt. Bristol board illustration paper). Although the art is primarily black and white, a color comic is occasionally posted. The art style, although minimalist, stands out due to its disjointed style. The artist often draws people with misaligned eyes, and only three, flipper-like fingers.[2] In a 2010 interview Drew revealed that for the preceding two years, the comic was not drawn by him, but contracted to a Chinese illustration firm, leading to changes in the style and appearance of its characters.
