George Booth grew up in Fairfax, Missouri, population 800. After two tours in the Marines, he attended Corcoran Art School in Washington, D.C. and Adelphi University on Long Island, where he now lives. His cartoons, often identifiable by their now-famous dogs and cats, first began appearing in The New Yorker in 1969.
