Bio:
Peter Kuper's illustrations and comics appear regularly in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and MAD, where he illustrates SPY vs. SPY every month.

He has written and illustrated many books including Comics Trips, a journal of an eight-month trip through Africa and Southeast Asia.

Other works include Stripped - An Unauthorized Autobiography, Mind's Eye, The System, a wordless graphic novel and adaptations of numerous short stories of Franz Kafka collected in Give It Up!. All of these are sampled in Speechless, a coffee table art book covering his career up to 2000.

His most recent books are adaptions of Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis, Upton Sinclair's The Jungle and Sticks and Stones, a wordless graphic novel about the rise and fall of empires, which was awarded the gold medal in the sequential arts category in the 2004 Society of Illustrators competition.

In 1979 he co-founded the political comix magazine World War 3 Illustrated and remains on its editorial board to this day. Since 1986 he has taught courses in comics and illustration at the School of Visual Arts and currently at Parsons in New York City and is also an art director of INX, a political illustration group syndicated through the web at inxart.com.

Peter Kuper lives in Manhattan with his wife Betty Russell, and their daughter Emily.
