Introduction After high school graduation, I attended The Billy Hon School of Cartooning in Los Angeles. I then joined the U.S. Marines for four years. After military discharge in Washington, D.C. I attended The Corcoran School of Art in the nation's capital where I studied anatomy for two years. In 1976 I opened Roy Delgado's Sign Studio in Falls Church, Virginia where the company grew to a full service sign company including a complete sheet metal, welding and neon plant where the company grew to 32 employees and were involved in designing and manufacturing huge sign programs for IBM, McDonald's, Fuddruckers, Starbucks and many other Fortune 500 companies. The company was sold in 2001. I now live in my mountain-top home and studio in beautiful, wild and wonderful West Virginia with my lovely wife, Betty of 51 years and three cats, Midnight, Rocky ( as in Balboa ) and newly acquired Fast Eddie ( as in The Hustler ). I stay busy passionately drawing cartoons full time and my cartoons have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Barron's, Saturday Evening Post, Medical Economics, National Lampoon books, Reader's Digest, Playboy, Etc.
