Meet the Author

Growing up on a farm in Iowa, the young Bob Artley not only had prowess milking a cow but could skillfully draw any bovine's likeness with a pencil and paper. He went on to study art at Grinnell College and the University of Iowa before becoming an editorial cartoonist first at the Des Moines Tribune and later at the Worthington (Minnesota) Daily Globe newspapers. Artley's long-lived series of autobiographical drawings "Memories of a Former Kid" is his masterpiece and continues to be syndicated in daily and weekly newspapers. Born and raised near Hampton, Iowa, he now lives in Winter Haven, Florida.
