Antonio F. Branco was born in 1956 in Fort Bragg, California, and raised in a small California logging town (in the Mendocino county) called Point Arena. He joined the US Army MP Corps in 1975 and was honorably discharged in 1978.
Branco attended Woodland Hills college briefly before moving to the Northwest. His beginnings in cartooning came while working at a sawmill in Sedro-Woolley Washington.
His ability to frame life in picture created a humorous environment, depicting his bosses and coworkers in exaggerated, but realistic scenarios. Signing “Guess who” kept the cartoons a mystery.
Following the yearnings of entrepreneurship, he decided to take his creations to the next level in the formation of A.F. Branco Designs. His political passion would be displayed on t-shirts and hats.
Other projects he was involved in were musical. His band Tony and the Tigers, played at gigs all over the Pacific Northwest.
Flash Forward to today, A.F. Branco has taken his two greatest passions, (art and politics) and manifested them into the cartoons that have been seen all over the country, in various news outlets including “Fox News” and “The Washington Post.” He has been recognized by such personalities as James Woods, Sarah Palin, Larry Elder, Lars Larson, and even the great El Rushbo.
