Brian Ajhar’s work has found its way into most national magazines, and periodicals throughout his 30-year career as an illustrator. His watercolor acrylic and ink illustrations are known for their whimsical satire and are influenced by nineteenth century European political satirists and book illustrators. His work has appeared in a diverse range of publications from The Wall Street Journal, Time, Sports Illustrated and Rolling Stone to the covers of Newsweek and Forbes Magazines. He has created illustrations for Advertising campaigns in the US and abroad and has worked on projects designing characters for TV and Film. Brian Ajhar has Children’s Book credits that include the New York Times Best Seller "The Giggler Treatment" published by Arthur Levine Books. Others include "Scarlet Angelina Wolverton-Manning", "A Bursts of Firsts", "Rover Saves Christmas", “The Meanwhile Adventures”, "Home on the Range”, and "Pinocchio" which was developed from a 35 minute film he did that aired on Showtime. Brian’s newest illustrated children’s book called “Gone With The Wand” came out in late spring 2009 and is published by Orchard/Scholastic. Along with editorial and book accomplishments Brian has been included in many books about illustration including "The Illustrator in America" A historical collection of artists, which features him as one of 30 illustrators mentioned to have great impact in the field of illustration during the 1990’s. After graduating from Phillipsburg High School Brian began studying art at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, PA.
