Joseph James Lee Karg is an American illustrator who has contributed on the award winning television show ARCHER for FX, and recently completed work on the Netflix Original Series The Get Down created by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge).
Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, but raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Karg attended The Art Institute of Atlanta where he received a BFA in Media Art and Animation and SCAD where he received an MFA in Painting. When he's not illustrating or designing for a television show or film, Joseph is freelancing for clients like Comedy Central, Viacom, Judd Apatow Productions, WTF with Marc Maron or dedicating himself to his students at The Art Institute of Atlanta.
In addition to his commercial work, Karg's art has also been celebrated and sold in one of Atlanta's premier fine art galleries Solomon Projects. It has been said that his paintings and illustrations are often suffused with a dreamy humor and lyricism worthy of Honoré Daumier.
