About Larry Feign

Larry Feign has been disappointing his mother since the age of seven, when he decided to become a writer and cartoonist instead of a brain surgeon or senior partner in a leading law firm. To her annoyance, Larry's work has appeared in hundreds of publications around the world and he is the author of 14 books. He has worked as a caricaturist in Hawaii, animator in Hollywood, and cartoonist in London and Hong Kong. Larry considers himself a "generic" American. He currently resides in the remote wilderness of Lantau Island with his wife, children, dogs, beehive and the occasional visiting snake.
