Rick Stevens’ Dilbert/Diesel Sweeties Mashup

One of the more engaging things about enjoying any cartoonist’s work is how much they tend to acknowledge each other.

So it’s not surprising to see Rick Stevens creating this small homage to Scott Adams.

Adams is the artist behind the wildly popular “Dilbert” comic strip which usually satirizes the modern-day geek in a business office environment…

A week or two back I promised to post a picture of Rick Stevens.

Well here he is, just as he appears on the back book jacket of his cartoon anthology, “Bacon is a Vegetable, Coffee is a Vitamin”…

  1. This wasn’t a homage but RStevens made this to be critical of Scott Adams. The Dilbert author had stirred up a hornet’s nest by making disparaging comments towards women in tech, which is one reason why rather than saying ‘Dilbert’ RStevens mixes it with Scott Adams’ own name which is done to satirize the author’s own opinions and his strip in one comic. I’m not sure if you didn’t get the joke being at Adams expense or if you did and wanted to keep your blog on a more friendly tone.

    1. Hello, Diesel Sweetener!

      First, thank you for your visit and your comment. Both are appreciated.

      You are obviously a devoted fan of “Diesel Sweeties” and follow this artist closely… much more closely than I do, as I have only been aware of his work for a month or two.

      I do try to maintain a positive tone as much as possible.

      I had not been aware of the story behind this “hornet’s nest” to which you refer. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

      Your addition to this post adds an additional layer of meaning to the work. Thank you for this insight!

      All best,

      J Pochapin
