About me

Hello! I'm Joe Wos, cartoonist, storyteller, writer, and performer.

Over the past 30 years I have found unique ways to combine my cartooning skills with other artforms. 

I have performed my blend of storytelling and live cartoon illustrations nationwide for schools, festivals, libraries and events. My hand drawn illustrated mazes have been dubbed both the world's largest and world's most difficult. I perform live on stage with symphonies combining music and live drawing. I also present keynotes on a variety of subjects including creativity in the workplace. I was also one of the earliest artists to produce live meeting and conference visual capturing. Now 

 

I am a visiting resident cartoonist of the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California, an honor I have held for the past 13 years. I am also the founder and former executive director of the ToonSeum, Pittsburgh's museum of comic and cartoon art. 

 

As a pop culture historian I am the culture contributor to WESA, a public radio station based in Pittsburgh. My writing also appears regularly in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. 

 

As you can see my experiences and skills are unique and diverse.  They all share one thing in common: For the past 30 plus years I have had the great pleasure and opportunity to do what I truly love.

 

I am hope we will have the opportunity to work together soon.
