Ward Sutton was born in Minneapolis and has been drawing comics since he was very young. His first comic strip, 'Ward Cleaver's', started in 1990 as a self-syndicated strip and ran until 1997. In 1991, he moved to Seattle, where he began designing and illustrating low-budget posters for local bands. After moving to New York in 1995, Ward Sutton took his artwork a level higher by debuting his weekly comic strip 'Schlock'n'Roll' in The Village Voice and creating brightly colored, limited-edition silk-screened posters for bands such as Beck, Blues Traveler, Mudhoney and Pearl Jam. Two years later, he was hired to do the art for Broadway show 'Freak'. Many exhibitions of his work and tours across the country followed. In 1999, Ward started creating 'Op-Art' cartoons for the New York Times. In the new millennium, Ward Sutton is branching out into the field of animation.
