Hey, I’m Ira. I’m a cartoonist living in Upstate New York with his wife, two cats, a dog and lots of odd books. Yes, you can borrow them.
My love for stories about ancient magic, mythical monsters, and possible futures has led me to work with the European Research Council to speculate on future-tech, create a warehouse of esoteric objects for the Hugo Award Winning magazine, Weird Tales, and discuss world building in this episode of the PBS series, A House for the Arts. But honestly, my proudest moment was when Understanding Comics author, Scott McCloud wrote a thoughtful blog post about my work. 😍
My early experiments with illustration and narrative culminated in an eighty-foot 'illustrated music video' created in collaboration with Vimeo founder, Jake Lodwick.
