Where creativity is nurtured, skills are acquired, and art is made
Bigfoot (Tony Moramarco)
Tony was born and raised in Southern California. He attended the Art Institute of San Diego, where he studied Illustration and Graphic Design. He became a nationally published Cartoonist at the young age of 19. After graduation, Tony worked as a Cartoonist and Art Director for a Looney Tunes licensee in Washington DC. He also worked in Maryland, for Marriott Corporate Design & Promotion. Today, he designs & illustrates for clients worldwide.
Tony brings a sense of pride and immense work ethic to every design project, which he attributes to his hardworking Italian family. His success as an independent artist is mainly due to his creativity, his problem-solving skills and his accountability. "If I say it's going to get done, it gets done," says Tony.
As an Illustrator, Tony's cartoons have been published and sold around the world. His drawing style has been compared to Matt Groening, the creator of "The Simpsons" and Jim Davis, the creator of "Garfield."
Tony has also spent time as a disc jockey, commercial voice talent and internet radio host. He hosted the "Saturday Sound" on KRTM, voiced the narration for a national television campaign and co-created, produced and co-hosted a worldwide internet comedy podcast.
In 1998, Tony established the "Cartooning with Bigfoot" workshop, and has since taught more than 50,000 children the fun and creative art of Cartooning. Tony also teaches Art, Anime & Design at various other private, public and charter schools throughout the southland.
Bigfoot Graphics' art programs now include Anime, as well as classes in Graphic Design, Multi-Media and Fine Art. Students from all over Southern California recognize Tony as the fun and talented artist with a true gift for teaching.
Tony's design clients continue to work with him because he is their link to all things creative.
