Following a Bachelor’s degree in music from the University of British Columbia in 1991, Kaamran Hafeez moved to New York to study visual arts. After a year at Parson’s School of Design, he transferred to the architecture program at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and while there, wrote and illustrated the editorial cartoon for the university’s newspaper, The Michigan Daily.
In 2006 Kaamran returned to Vancouver, and in 2008 launched the digitally syndicated single-panel feature Bozo for Universal uclick’s Gocomics website. In 2010, he ended his arrangement with Universal uclick to pursue a career in magazine cartooning. A few months later he sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker.
Kaamran's cartoons have been published in The New Yorker, Barron’s, Reader’s Digest, Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, Saturday Evening Post, and Medical Economics.
