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 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 student newspaper as a cartoonist, columnist and editor.

After college, I worked as an artist for a large company and was a syndicated political cartoonist in the Chcago area. Later, I worked under under contract  for King Features Syndicate and Tribune Media, creating comic strips.

 

My recent work has been featured in The Atlantic, Forbes, Wall Street Journal and NBC's Today Show. (But I was thinking about it and more people may have seen me at the store...so that could be a better introduction.)

 

I have created cartoons and humorous illustrations for companies ranging from start ups to Fortune 100, including Bayer, Cisco Systems, General Motors, Google, Intel, McDonalds and Time Warner.

 

I've had the good fortune to illustrate books for a variety of publishers, including MacMillan, Pearson/Prentice Hall, Penguin, Random House and Wiley.

 

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

 

95% 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/How it Works:

 

Call or email to describe what you have in mind and I'll give you a cost and time estimate.


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 often scheduled a week or two ahead, but I am happy to discuss your ideas now.

 

Feel free to visit my blog, The Dancing Moose to see what I've been up to lately
