Alan King is a Toronto artist/illustrator with wide experience in the publishing and advertising world. Most of his work is done digitally using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop but he also works in acrylics, watercolours and oils. His clients include Harper/Collins Publishing, Canada Post, the Royal Canadian Mint, Maclean’s magazine, Time Canada, Entrepreneur magazine and many others.
He is also a fine artist (http://www.kingfineart.com/) working in oils.
For many years he was a nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist and arts writer. In his off hours he works out, plays classical piano and reads mostly non-fiction. He has an irrational fear of small pit bulls and large spiders — as well as of course large pit bulls and small spiders.
Alan is not, as far as he knows, related to the deceased Toronto film-maker with the same name.
He can be reached at 647-521-9358.
You can read some of his writing on the Blog page. His deathless prose has appeared in the National Post, the Ottawa Citizen, the Canadian Medical Association Journal and Ottawa Magazine.
