his parents along with him.

design, decided to do this cartoonist thing
and got hired to work for
Laughing Stock magazine

later co-created the
Madam & Eve
cartoon strip in 1992,
which was eventually syndicated all over South
and also re-published
in France, Denmark and Sweden --
while also working as editorial
illustrator for the
Weekly Mail until 1994.
While keeping a regular supply of daily cartoons going,
worked on a wide variety of illustration and
cartoon projects with
ranging from editorial,
corporate communication, education, magazines,
publishing, comics and advertising.
