Artist Tim Walsh

Artist Tim Walsh

A Daze Work is the creation of Tim Walsh, an award-winning graphic designer and lifelong Jersey Shore resident. Tim took his real-life summer experiences working on the boardwalk, and created a unique comic showcasing them. Writer Chris Robinson had similar experiences during his youth, and was happy to lend his creative style to the pages of A Daze Work. A comedian, improviser, and YouTuber, Chris has taken the imaginative world Tim created, and put his own brand of humorous insanity on each page.

A Daze Work follows the life of Finch and Barry, two guys flipping burgers and making pizza at The PLUS. The PLUS is a small boardwalk eatery in Pleasant Point, New Jersey. Finch, the main character, is someone you probably knew yourself growing up. An average Joe trying to find his place in the world, yet he always finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Barry is Finch’s best friend. They’ve grown up together and even though they’re working a crummy summer job, they’re both looking for something more out of life. Will they find it? Will wacky customers and summer love derail their plans?
