Hersh Jacob

Hersh Jacob is a visual artist, writer, graphic designer and creative director. He has worked as an artist his entire professional life, seamlessly moving his pursuits through the mediums of cartooning, illustration, theatre, education and publishing.

Originally from Winnipeg, Hersh sold his first cartoon at age 13.  Soon after, he began peddling his art to anyone who would look at it:  school boards, publishers, pizza chains, NGO’s, galleries and ad agencies.  At 15 he was hired by the Manitoba Theatre Centre at the Manitoba Theatre School to develop and teach film workshops.  During the same period, he apprenticed in visual arts and painting with Arthur Horsfall, R. A.  He also studied Commercial Art & Graphic Design at Red River Community College and took courses at the University of Winnipeg.

In 2003, Hersh started Studio22 Idea Manufactory with his wife Ally as a creative studio focusing on design, publishing and production.  The Open Gallery was developed a few years later as a way to directly engage the public and bring an audience to their activities and those of other artists.  Hersh’s current focus is on design, typography, printing, digital art and looking out the window.
