About Us

Welcome to Garfield's Art Gallery and Collectibles Store...the official home of original Garfield comic strips, airbrushed artwork, animation cels and more! 

Since 1978, Jim Davis (the creator of the GARFIELD comic strip) has archived original Garfield artwork, comic strips, products, airbrushed artwork from the 80's and 90's, and even his own sketches from creative sessions! Jim has personally authorized the sale of these unique items to Garfield fans.  His company, Paws, Inc., curates these archived items and offers them for sale in this one-of-a-kind online store.

Garfield's creative headquarters, Paws, Inc., in 1981 was a simple ranch house.    In 1990, Jim Davis was able to build this 36,000 square-foot studio.
Jim Davis' creative studio, Paws, Inc., in 1981 was a simple ranch house. In 1990, he was able to build his "dream studio" - thanks in large part to the "Stuck on You" Garfield doll craze. The 36,000 square-foot building is now the worldwide licensing and creative headquarters for the GARFIELD comic strip and brand.

Jim's office has all the comforts of home, including a fireplace and kitchen. He does most of his sketching for comic strip ideas directly on a computer tablet called a Cintiq.

The Paws staff includes artists, writers, sculptors, accountants, salespeople, computer guys, account managers, clerical support, licensing coordinators, landscapers, a maintenance crew and a lawyer.
