Life Before Fame

Jim Davis was an artistic kid possibly like you. When younger Jim lived on a farm with his parents and brother. At the farm there were cows and cats him and his brother took care of. You might be wondering when and where he was born. He was born in Marion Indiana in 1945. Once he was getting older he started drawing more. Eventually he got into Ball State. He was also an assistant for Tom Ryan. So what i'm saying is Jim Davis teamed up with Tumbleweed.
