I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, later moving to Los Angeles for high school and then to NYC when I was 20 to begin my career as an illustrator of comic books for Marvel and DC. From 1987-89, I was the artist on the monthly Captain America title, later moving on to other titles featuring Batman, Superman, The Avengers, and other mainstream superheroes at the big 2 comics publishers.
Eventually, I sought opportunities at smaller, independent publishers and created or co-created a host of books like Night Mary, Last of the Independents, Remains, XXXombies, and LCD: Lowest Comic Denominator, an adult humor comic series with a devout cult following, currently being reprinted by Portland-based publisher, Image Comics. You may have heard about me being sued by Starbucks for creating a parody of their famous company logo, which should have been protected speech. With the help of a San Francisco lawyer named Andy Gold and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, I fought the coffee giant as long as it was feasible, but ultimately settled out of court. You can read about it on my wikipedia page and with a google search.
In addition to the LCD collection, I have a book collection of my political cartoons hitting stores at the end of June 2020 called UNPRESIDENTED, also from Image. Many of the illustrations from that book can currently be found here in my galleries (or will eventually be added as I am able). Many of those same toons can be found on cartooncollections.com and cartoonstock.com
In addition to the advertising work I do for a living, I regularly draw 1-2 new cartoons each and every day. I would love to be syndicated and am openly looking for more opportunities to get my cartoons seen by a wider audience. Please contact me if you are interested in running my stuff.
