Some of Richard Codor’s earliest memories are of hunching over a pad of paper, amusing himself with his drawings. From his tender youth growing up in Wilmington, Delaware, through his graduation from the University of Delaware, he has strived to perfect his art and to make a living from it, too.
His illustrations appear regularly in Hadassah Magazine and he was editorial cartoonist for Crain’s NY Business and NY Observer. His work is featured in the books The Big Book of Jewish Humor (Collins), All You Want To Know About Sabbath Service (Behrman House), and in Israel, the social satire classic, Zoo Eretz Zoo (E.L.S. Editions.) where he lived and worked for the Television Authority and Jerusalem Post.
His storyboards are used in numerous multiethnic, politically correct and incorrect movies, TV and Internet media such as “Doug”, “Lizzie McGuire”, “Robots” and “Queer Duck”. He is a recipient of multiple Jewish Press Association/Rockower Awards for Cartooning and the first Charles Schulz Prize.
