About Tony Rubino:

Anthony Rubino, Jr., was born in New Jersey, a first-generation, Italian-American, Roman-Catholic. Needless to say he developed a sense of humor at an early age … and then felt guilty about it. Combining confusion, art, humor and TV he found his calling in the careful study of drivel.

tony rubino panel cartoonsTony is the co-creator of the internationally syndicated comic strip, “Daddy’s Home.” His other cartoon syndication credits include national distribution by King Features and Tribune Media Services.

His latest book, “Why Didn’t I Think of That? Mediocre Inventions That Changed The World,” is also an internationally syndicated, weekly column. Never a stickler for math, Tony wrote, “Life Lessons from Your Dog” as the fifth installment of his Life-Lessons book trilogy, which includes “Life Lessons from Your Cat,” “Life Lessons from Elvis,” “Life Lessons from the Bradys,” and “Life Lessons from Melrose Place.” Before that he displayed his steely work ethic by penning, “1001 Reasons to Procrastinate.” And his fear of discomfort through eternal damnation is reflected in his recent tome, “The Get Into Heaven Deck: Or Your Money Back.” Along the way Tony has contributed his articles and cartoons to publications such as: MAD Magazine, Cracked, National Lampoon, the Chicago Tribune, and Opium Magazine.

Tony’s designs, comics and words can also be found on greeting cards and other product lines such as calendars, posters, and apparel sold in stores and catalogs worldwide.

His paintings and prints have been featured in galleries in New York, Chicago, Washington and LA.

When not working on his writing and art in New York City he spends his time not working on his writing and art in New York City.
