About Us (About the cartoonist, anyway)

I am a Boulder Colorado-based cartoonist and illustrator...and began creating artwork when I was old enough to hold a crayon without also eating it. This early self-imposed dietary restriction led to work for some school newspapers, (the pre-school newspaper was the back of a spare Pampers.)

15 years later at the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign, I worked at the Daily Illini student newspaper as a cartoonist, columnist and editor.

After college, I was a political cartoonist syndicated in the Midwest...and I then worked under contract for King Features Syndicate and Tribune Media, creating some now obscure comic strips.

My work has been appeared in over 200 publications, (including The Atlantic, Forbes and the Wall Street Journal), and has been featured on NBC's Today Show.


I have been fortunate enough to illustrate books for a variety of publishers, including Pearson/Prentice Hall, Penguin, Random House and Wiley, (ranging from children's to business books).

At times I am still mildly tempted to eat/suck on my drawing utensils...but I use a Wacom Cintiq digital drawing screen now, so there is a 120 volt "incentive" not to do so. (Technology has come a long way.)


Fortune 100 firms are among my repeat clients...as well as  start-ups, small businesses and first-time authors. Most of my clients are outside of my home state of Colorado...so I can create something for you, no matter where you are.


The Process:


Call or email me to describe what you have in mind and I'll give you a cost and time estimate. (I do not always fit everyone's budgets, but I do try exceed everyone's goal of quality and client satisfaction.)

After being hired, I'll create sketches and/or ideas, and I'll email these to you for your approval. After making any needed revisions, I'll proceed with finished artwork, giving you high resolution digital files, in any format that you prefer.

I am usually booked up a week or two ahead, but I am happy to discuss your ideas now.
