Peter Ferguson was born in Montreal, Canada in 1968. He set his sights on an illustration career after seeing the movie Star Wars, deciding that he would like to draw spaceships. After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto in 1992, he began his career as a professional illustrator, using oil as his medium of choice. His personal work is a mixture of the fantastical and the bizarre. He has worked for Marvel Comics, the Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times, among others.
