Munson grew up in the suburbs of Long Island eating triangle shaped pizza, mowing lawns, and listening to Billy Joel. He also doodled a lot. He studied advertising, photography and graphic design in college and is currently an ACD at a broadcast advertising agency in Chicago. The doodling hasn't stopped and he continues to find himself drawing on client strategies while on conference calls. It seemed like a natural transition to move over to ceramics, where the canvas can be any shape...and it doesn't say "Third Quarter Projections" next to your work.
