In 1988 Adams mailed some sample comic strips featuring Dilbert to the major cartoon syndicates. United Feature Syndicate plucked Dilbert out of thousands of submissions received that year and offered Adams a contract. Dilbert was launched in about 50 newspapers in 1989.

Adams continued his day job at Pacific Bell until 1995, drawing Dilbert every day before work. Now Adams devotes his entire day (and much of the evening) to Dilbert, including speaking, writing, doing interviews, designing artwork for licensed products and answering hundreds of e-mail messages per day.

Trivia: Adams is trained as a hypnotist and is a vegetarian. He is a strong believer in affirmations.
