Steve Cartwright  "It's  well  known  that  an  artist  becomes  more  popular  by  dying,  so  I'm  typing  this  with  one  hand  while  pummeling  my  head  with  a  frozen  mackerel  with  the  other. I  have  been  staff  writer  and  artist  for  two  local  newspapers,  the  Atlanta  Suburban  Reporter  and  the  Fulton  County  News-Daily. I  do  art  and  graphic  design  in  Adobe  Photoshop,  please  view  some  at  my  website, Cartoons by Cartwright.  My  art  has  been  published  in  magazines  such  as  Georgia  Journal;  Poets,  Artists  &  Madmen;  Indigenous Fiction;  Liquid  Ohio;  Contraband;  In  the  Spirit  of  the  Buffalo;  Starblade;  Good  Dog;  Fantasy, Folklore & Fairytales;  Tropical  Fish  Hobbyist;  Urban  Spaghetti;  and  others.  My  art  work  has  also  appeared  in  Seeing  Through  Symbols,  a  literary  anthology  published  by  Chrysalis  Books.  I  am  a  contributing  artist  for  Creative  Loafing,  an  Atlanta  weekly  with  a  circulation  of  300, 000;  and  Shroder  Publishing's  three  monthlies  in  Atlanta,  with  a  combined  circulation  of  28,000. I  did  computer  animation  for  the  Matrix  board  at  the  Atlanta  Stadium,  depicting  the  Braves  and  the  Falcons.
Please  hurry, make me famous  --  this  mackerel's  killin'  me!"
