Bio

I’m second-generation born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, after my grandmother, a school teacher, arrived in 1921. My comics, editorial cartoons and illustrations have appeared worldwide in hundreds of publications since 1992. Notable long-term projects have included the comic strip Minimum Security (syndicated through Universal Uclick), and the editorial cartoon Code Green. Translations of several of my books have been published abroad. I’ve spoken about art and social change at many universities, conferences, radio shows and other venues. My originals and papers are archived at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State University. Currently I create work in various media and offer classes with my partner, Christopher Burns, in our downtown Fort Lauderdale studio.
