Ken Fallin is an internationally published illustrator, whose specialty is pen and ink caricature. His career began creating the ad campaigns and posters for the satirical revue Forbidden Broadway, as a respectful homage to the legendary Al Hirschfeld. This assignment led to a five-year stint for theSunday edition of the Boston Herald, where he contributed a weekly drawing in the arts and leisure section. National ad campaigns for American Express, Belvedere Vodka, and CNBC's "Squawk Box" followed. He has also done illustrations for The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, The Hollywood Reporter, The Chicago Tribune, and The New Yorker. Since 1994 Ken's work has appeared regularly in The Wall Street Journal. Ken has chronicled the New York theatre scene for Playbill.com since 2010. In February of 2012 he had his first one-man show "Ken Fallin Draws Hollywood" for the Hamilton Selway Gallery in Los Angeles. In 2010 he was nominated for an Emmy Award for an animated CNBC commercial. His work is in the Permanent Collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and in the private collections of Bernadette Peters, Angela Lansbury, Bob Avian, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Sir Patrick Stewart, Marlo Thomas, Helen Hunt and Norbert Leo Butz.
