This is the homepage for Barry Deutsch, aka Ampersand. I'm a cartoonist, living in Portland, Oregon.
I'm best-known for my graphic novel Hereville, published by Abrams in November of 2010.
“Without a doubt, this is the best graphic novel of 2010 for kids. Bar none.”
—Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal.
I also do political cartooning. My political cartoons appear in every issue of Dollars and Sense Magazine, and are collected on the website leftycartoons.com.
I've done other comics, as well - check out this archive of (some of) my past comics. There's also a portfolio of some of my commerical illustrations.
Then there's my blog (mine along with a few co-authors,
that is), Alas, a Blog. Lots of discussion of politics here, especially about "identity politics" issues.
Oh, and if you're a beginning cartoonist, you may find
this Guide to Making Comics I
created years ago useful.
That's it! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you enjoy my comics.
