Oh, hello.

Mike Capozzola is a San Francisco-based cartoonist. He began creating baby name art as gifts for a few of his friends, and somewhere along the way, a lot of commissions and requests started rolling in. Originally inspired by vintage playbills and concert posters, he fashions each letter of the baby's name into a whimsical character.


He’s contributed to Mad Magazine, McSweeney's and more. His cartoon "Surveillance Caricatures" ran for four years in the San Francisco Chronicle, and he’s contributed more than 40 premises to the award-winning, nationally syndicated cartoon, “BIZARRO.”  


Mike volunteers regularly as guest cartoonist as 826 Valencia and has been Cartoonist-in-Residence at the Cartoon Art Museum and The Charles M. Schulz Museum.

He’s also appeared at the De Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences.


He has the most adorable niece in the known universe and regularly creates art just for her.
