Born in New Jersey to a first-generation, Italian-American Roman Catholic family, we have artist and author Tony Rubino. Revealing the extraordinary amongst the ordinary, he seeks to raise dialogue on pop-culture, celebrity, technology and the barrage of information we are fed on a daily basis through social media and the internet. His latest book, “You Can’t Scare Him He’s A Parent”, is a collection of his internationally syndicated comic strip, “Daddy’s Home.” His book, “Why Didn’t I Think Of That? 101 Inventions That Changed The World By Hardly Trying”, is now an internationally syndicated, weekly column in the UK and other English-speaking countries. It’s also in its third printing and has been released under another title in the UK, Sweden, Australia, and the Netherlands. A third version has been translated and released in Italy. Tony has contributed his articles and cartoons to publications such as Will Ferrell’s “Funny Or Die”, MAD Magazine, Cracked, National Lampoon, and the Chicago Tribune.
Tony is the co-creator of the Internationally syndicated comic strip, “Daddy's Home”, which appears in more than 250 newspapers and websites and is seen by 26 million people every day. “Daddy’s Home” is a fresh and funny look at the contemporary trials and tribulations of a growing segment of the modern family dynamic -- the stay at home dad. 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.
