Smithville, Indiana, United States
I am a cartoonist/illustrator who specializes in creating unique characters and
cartoons for clients from all over the world, for any type of needs. I enjoy creating unusual characters and environments for animation, and like to walk the razor's edge between cartoons and fine art. I have worked with Fortune 500 companies and non-profit's, along with animation studios and have licensed art for products and merchandise.
My goal is to continue creating and breathing.
"Cartoonist Kevin Pope has illustrated for Playboy magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Mad Magazine, the NBC animated show Sammy, Pepsi TV commercials, and the comics Inside Out and The Far Side.
These days, Pope is creating finer art. Applying acrylic paints and found objects on birch planks or vintage stationary, Pope creates vignettes of imagined 1930s’ scenes—a railroad station, a jazz group, a farmer and his wife.
“I’ve continued on artwork that hopefully has the ability to tell stories, with a bit of humor, while embracing vintage Americana,” Pope says."
