I'm Austin Ickes, an illustrator and cartoonist based in Medford, Massachusetts. My work emphasizes character, communication, and clean lines. I'm particularly drawn to depicting city life and all the mischief and miscellany encountered therein and I hope to make you reexamine the mundane via my comics and cartoons!

I have a background in anthropology and studio art from Kalamazoo College, and hold an MFA in Illustration and Visual Culture from Washington University in St. Louis, where I assisted in instruction and served as research fellow at the Dowd Illustration Research Archive.
