Born in Greenwich Village in 1967, Ian David Marsden is the son of a hardcore Madison Avenue "Mad Man" and a Jungian psychoanalyst, which meant he had all the makings for a cartoonist and illustrator. He spent his formative years in Zurich, Switzerland, and later worked and lived in Barbados West Indies, New York City, Santa Monica, Paris, and southern France. His cartoons have sold to a number of magazines, including?Mad Magazine?and the?New Yorker. Ian designed the official mascot of the Ski World Championship 2003 in St. Moritz, was the first Google Doodle designer in 1999-2001, and has worked on comic strips printed on Coca-Cola cans. He currently lives in the Pic Saint Loup region of the south of France.
