About Us (About the cartoonist, anyway)

 

I am a Boulder Colorado-based cartoonist and illustrator...and began drawing when I was old enough to hold a crayon without also eating it. This early self-imposed dietary restriction led to work as a cartoonist 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 columnist, cartoonist 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 published 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 now that I use a Wacom Cintiq digital drawing screen, there is a 120 volt "incentive" not to do so. (Technology has come a long way.)

 

Fortune 100 firms and book publishers 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:

 

Just call or email me to describe what you have in mind and I'll give you a cost and time estimate. (I am not cheap or lightning fast; my main goal is 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 one to two weeks ahead, but I am happy to discuss your ideas and needs now.
