Frank Cammuso was born in New York. When still in high school, he drew his first comic strip. He studied at Syracuse University, where he drew the strip 'SU Zoo', about animals in college. He graduated in illustration in 1987, and became a stand-up comedian for a while, before truning to political cartooning. He was hired by the Syracuse Newspapers, and soon his popular cartoons were reprinted in newspapers like USA Today, The New York Times and Newsweek. A collection, titled 'Below the Belt', appeared in 1993. Together with Hart Seely, he has written humorous columns.
Frank Cammuso is the artist of the comic series 'Max Hamm, Fairy Tale Detective'. This witty comic about a pig detective who solves crimes in the land of fairy tales ("Humpty Dumpty and Little Bo Peep as You've Never Seen Them Before!") has been acclaimed as utterly charming, with a great sense of humor and a deft artistic touch.
