Corey Pandolph decided he wanted to be a syndicated cartoonist at the early age of 5. You see, back then newspapers were king and newspaper cartoonists lived in hillside mansions, sipping martinis, while drawing with saffron-infused ink on gold parchment. What gifted young lad wouldn’t dream of such things?
Fortunately, the Internet age of new media destroyed all the fortunes of those high horses just in time for Corey to attain his dream of cartoon syndication. The syndicated cartoonist of today is no longer on the golf course at noon. He is home, toiling over T-shirt sales and book shipments, all while preparing for his next shift at the Olive Garden. Yes, those lofty dreams of a soft newspaper-wrapped existence have given way to a blinding uncertainty in a snarky future of something mildly resembling “comic strips”.
And Corey Pandolph is right in the smarmy middle of it.
As well as successfully positioning himself as the regular at the end of the bar, Corey Pandolph has penned several comics (Including the Internationally syndicated THE ELDERBERRIES through Universal/Uclick), contributed to major publications (Mad Magazine) and designed logos and websites to pay the heating bill (Con Ed). There are rumors that Corey Pandolph is the Fake Rockstar, but we at Drink at Work refuse to comment on such drivel. Here’s a list of his work and links:

When he’s not drawing and writing the funny, Corey does graphic design. Here’s a link to a few samples of recent work:

Corey can be found most days at the Hi-Life on 83rd and Amsterdam. If you see him, approach with caution and whisky.
