 Bio 
 
Everyone knows a picture’s worth 1,000 words, but Kirk’s are worth 1,230. That extra 23% could translate into more cheese logs at your next office party!

Kirk Anderson is an animator, graphic designer, illustrator, and political cartoonist. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, USA Today, The Onion, and hundreds of other publications on four continents. He was the editorial cartoonist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press during the Jesse Ventura era, and created a multi-year serialized graphic novel/political satire for the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Kirk provides animated explainer videos to businesses, and animated cartoons to non-profit social justice organizations. He illustrates and designs magazine and book covers, and his artwork has been solicited for exhibits across the globe.

From logos to posters, from icons to caricatures, from storyboards to character design, if you can state your problem, Kirk can visualize your solution.
You have a story to tell,
a narrative, a message. You know how to tell your story in words; you may not be as fluent in pictures. The right visuals will get your message read, reinforced and retained.
 

 Message and image 
combine
 text and context 
to speak a
 left brain/right brain 
language to both
 the head and the heart. 

 
Think of message and image as speaker and setting. Imagine giving the best business presentation you’ve ever given. In a parking lot. In the rain. Now, imagine giving the same business presentation, but at the Grand Canyon. That’s how visuals impact your message.  

I’d like to
create your
Grand Canyon.
