I am Joy Kolitsky and Sugar Beet Press is my greeting card company. I started the company in 2005 with my husband, Jonathan Marshall, and we have remained a small operation since. The cards are produced in our home studio then carefully cut, folded, and shipped to buyers direct from the artist. I love the connection with my customers and especially look forward to the seeing their comments and choices. It is truly an honor to know that people are choosing my designs to give to the people they care about.
I have worked as artist since 1995 when I graduated from Cal State University, Long Beach with a BFA in illustration. I spent many years working as a storyboard artist for such animation studios as Augenblick Studios, Sony Pictures, MTV, and Hanna Barbera. My illustrations have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, Spider Magazine, and The Progressive Magazine. My comics have been published by Robot Publishing, Top Shelf, and Seven Stories Press.
