What is a Meesimo?
Cartoonist and Caricature artist Meesimo:
Born in St. Louis, trained under Tom Richmond and Ed Steckley, as I was a total rube, fresh out of High School, at the local Six Flags. I was even referred to by one of the senior artists as "the ultimate rookie", for my terrible lines and generic faces. Thanks to their tutelage I kept at it and got over the hump. From there I got my BFA in Computer animation and exhibited cartoony fine art in Miami, FL. Then did a 10 year stint in Los Angeles, CA, working for Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Disney, IDW, Dynamite, Blind Ferret, and more, creating character designs, storyboards and comics.
Currently, I'm on the road drawing caricatures at Fairs, festivals, and comic conventions, and producing comic books (KNUCKLEHEAD Comics, SWALLOW, Extremities). Also, a regular contributor to Ink and Drink Comic anthologies, ("HUNGOVER", "CHASER", "WASTED") ( http://inkanddrinkcomics.com ).
