Renowned cartoonist Jerry King has joined the Toke of the Town team.

​King is one of the most published, prolific and versatile cartoonists in the world today, with his work appearing in thousands of greeting cards, magazines, websites, books and newspapers.
His client list includes Disney, American Greetings, the United States Golf Association, and many others.
His magazine credits include work for Better Homes & Gardens, Golf Digest, the Saturday Evening Post, National Enquirer, Woman’s World and hundreds of other publications worldwide.
Amazingly, Jerry has also created nearly 2,000 greeting cards for more than 25 different companies.
Former President Bill Clinton mentioned one of Jerry’s greeting cards in a USA Today article. His work has also been recognized by former President George Bush.
​Aside from greeting cards and magazines, Jerry is also the author and illustrator of seven nationally published cartoon books. He has illustrated 10 children’s books, and one of his cartoon characters has been made into a stuffed animal.
After serving three years in the U.S. Army as a medic, Jerry, 42, went on to graduate from The Ohio State University with a B.A. in English. He now resides in northeast Ohio with his wife Anne and daughters Giana and Sienna, and two dogs, Baci and Bella.
Jerry says that when he’s not at the drawing board, he’s probably on a golf course — losing.
