Cartoon and Comic Art

My drawing career began over 30 years ago 😎. I have drawn cartoons, caricatures and comics for a wide variety of international magazines and newspapers including The New YorkerMAD Magazine, Nebelspalter, NZZ am Sonntag, to name a few. In the 1990s I drew a political comic strip called “Global Village News” which was syndicated through Peter Knight Syndicates. I have also created and written content for children’s television and children’s books, advertising, corporate clients and major events I even drew a series of recycling comics which were printed on Coca Cola cans. My first graphic novel, MARVIN, an adaptation of the official biography of musician and composer (and PEGOT winner) Marvin Hamlisch was released to critical acclaim by Schiffer Publishing, February 2020.

I have created character designs and mascots and business comics and custom made comic strips for many clients internationally and have a lot of experience in adding some fun and visual interest to topics that might otherwise be a little on the dry side.

I hope you enjoy the selection of artwork on this page.
