Much of what is known about Joe Peragino is based on wild rumors and information gained through questionable means and disreputable sources.
It is relatively accepted information that he began drawing obsessively at an early age, and developed a love of comics and illustrated books. His dark humor and sense of witty characterizations has led him to become one of the industrys leading character designers. It is also assumed that he is an "artist" and that his "work" is based on "non-traditional" imagery, concepts, and media.
Joe is believed to have studied Illustration at Pratt Institute in New York, where he allegedly studied Illustration. He is currently organizing Drawn to be Wild Studios, a Long Island, NY based , full service graphic design studio specializing in product development, licensing, packaging, design, and illustration for toys, games, activity kits, snack foods, candy and beverages.
It is possible and probable that this is a cover for an under-ground society or for possibly other deviant reasons or agendas. Approach with extreme caution!!
