Tom Deisboeck is a scientist-turned-entrepreneur who attended medical school in Germany and business school in the USA. He grew up reading comics from the Franco-Belgian tradition like Tintin and Asterix fueling his passion for drawing from a very young age, and led him to a third career as a cartoon artist.
Mostly self-taught, Tom is inspired and propelled by great mentors like Charles Zembillas of The Animation Academy in Burbank, CA, and John Byrne of The London Art College, UK.
His editorial cartoons appear regularly in online publications where they focus on current events, including political, financial, and scientific topics.
