About me

Gender MALE

Occupation Cartoonist
Location Petersburg, WV, United States
Introduction After graduating from Tucson High School in 1953 I attended the Billy Hon School of Cartooning in Los Angeles. I then joined the U.S. Marines for four years, and ended up in Washington, D.C.. After getting honourably discharged, I enrolled at the Corcoran School of Art where I studied figure drawing. In 1976 I founded and was CEO of a 34 man sign company specializing in Trade Show Decorations, Exhibits and Signage for the largest 100 Associations in the U.S. We later expanded and added an electrical sign division where we designed and manufactured electrical signs for many Fortune 500 companies. The company was sold in 2oo2. I now draw cartoons passionately full-time from my mountain-top home and studio in wild & wonderful West Virginia. My cartoons have appeared regularly in the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Harvard Business Review, Reader's Digest, etc. and recently Playboy magazine where Mr. Hefner just purchased 15 colour cartoons in May and June of 2007.
