Marcus Hamilton - Dennis the Menace
Marcus Hamilton - Dennis the Menace 2010.09.17
Hamilton received his Bachelor's in Commercial Art and began working in the field of freelance illustration. Hamilton would produce illustrations for magazine and book covers, as well as advertising art.
In 1993 Hamilton contacted Ketcham about an opportunity to draw Dennis the Menace should Ketcham retire. Ketcham liked what he saw, so Hamilton re-trained his drawing style to match Ketcham's and eventually took over the daily panels.
Marcus Hamilton was awarded the Reuben Award for Best Newspaper Panel 2004.
