MEET MARSHALL JAY KAPLAN

Updated: July 29, 2005

The Hirschfeld protege, avid film and TV fan and syndicated author & illustrator hails from Toronto, Canada. Marshall Jay Kaplan¹s exceptionally diverse creativity within the field of entertainment, has made him a unique talent in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.

As a cartoonist, Marshall¹s history is amazing. His first published work was at age 14. At age 17, he was the youngest Canadian to have a gallery showing of his celebrity drawings. By age 20, his artwork was in syndication and was seen by 10 million readers weekly.

Moving his talents to Los Angeles at the age of 21, he worked for years within the entertainment community. It was here where his career flourished. Numerous TV shows and film productions, along with many celebrities and agencies, were all using his work on a promotional level.

Once back in Toronto, Marshall began to focus on the business aspect of his career. He turned to merchandising and writing. After 5 years, his product line included greeting cards, clothing and an international board game.

Currently, Marshall¹s hectic schedule involves writing and illustrating his acclaimed, syndicated column ³Where Are They Now?², and spending time with his family.

As always, he is thankful to the late Al Hirschfeld for his kind words and advice over the years. Marshall resides in Thornhill (a suburb of Toronto), Canada with is gorgeous wife and his even more gorgeous children.
