Bob Staake

Bob Staake may not have the name recognition around town his work deserves, but there are few busier cartoonists in the country. Consider these highlights from Staake's résumé: contributions to The Ren and Stimpy Show (the famous dog-water fake commercial) and the animated series Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls; illustrations for two Jay Leno Headlines books; regular appearances in the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal and Mad magazine (to pick just a few from a long list of papers and periodicals); kids' books for Simon & Schuster; teen books for Penguin Putnam; greeting cards for Hallmark.
