Ken Kaminsky probably made his first cartoon when he was in the army, and he has been making cartoons ever since. Most of the cartoons with dates before 2014 appeared first in Augarithms, the newsletter of the Department of Mathematics of Augsburg College (now Augsburg University). Some of them have also appeared in mathematics journals and other professional magazines.
Ken has taught mathematics and statistics at universities in the United States and in Sweden. In the Before Times, his hobbies included table tennis, eating out, and playing guitar and ukulele.
