Ira Marcks is a cartoonist living in upstate New York.
His books include the graphic novel, Witch Knots, an illustrated adventure book, The Aquarium Drift, and a kid's guide to artistic careers, Creative Every Day. His work is inspired by vintage cartoons, science fiction, poetry and children's books.
His experiments with narrative art have appeared in the Hugo Award Winning sci-fi/fantasy magazine, Weird Tales, and culminated in an eighty-foot 'illustrated music video' created in collaboration with Vimeo founder, Jake Lodwick. His proudest moment was when comic theorist and Understanding Comics author, Scott McCloud wrote a thoughtful blog post about his work.
