Steve Barr

Visiting Artist

I began my career as a Cartoonist in fourth grade, when I copied a drawing of Mickey Mouse onto the top of my desk. My teacher must have really loved it, because she invited me to stay after school and spend a little extra time with her that day!

She kindly suggested that I might want to begin doodling on paper instead of the furniture. So I took her advice, and began creating comic books and selling them to my classmates in exchange for their lunch money. Apparently, I was fairly successful. I have a bit of a tummy these days, and most of my former classmates are still skinny.

By the time I reached the seventh grade, I was selling my cartoons to magazines and newspapers. And I've been at it ever since!

I've worked with Mobil, Bell Atlantic (Verizon), Tribune Media Services, the Complete Idiot's Guides, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Multi-Ad Services, Impact Books, Peel Publications, Super Duper Publications, SmileMakers, Childswork/Childsplay, The Bureau For At-Risk Youth, and many other wonderful companies.
