[About cartoonist/writer Gerry Shamray]

From the moment Gerry Shamray got his first box of Crayola Crayons as a child, he's been creating bright, colorful images and imaginative stories. The crayons may have been replaced by a Wacom tablet and mixed media but Gerry's inventive imagination continues to be fresh and youthful.

Gerry is best known for his sketchy life-like drawings of Harvey Pekar in the comic book "American Splendor" that was later turned into a hit movie starring Paul Giamatti. He's also worked with legendary comic strip artist/writer Tom Batiuk ("Crankshaft," "Funky Winkerbean") on the nationally syndicated strip, "John Darling," for King Features.

While working in the newspaper business as an artist and writer, Gerry has garnered over two dozen national and statewide awards and even earned a local Emmy during his stint at the Cleveland PBS station.

Gerry lives in Cleveland with his wife Tracy along with their two dogs and two cats. He loves to visit restaurants that leave crayons on their tables.
