In the spring of 1992 I wrote an article for the San Francisco Gate about Doug Ebenstein and his family. I was impressed by Doug Ebenstein as a photographer, editor, writer and teacher. I had interned with him at the Washington Post and knew him from his photography work for the Peace Corps. Doug’s wife, Rita, is an artist who has a gallery of her works located on the National Mall in Washington, DC. They have three grown children.
Doug started his photographic career while studying engineering at Boston University. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a master’s degree in civil and environmental engineering from BU. After that he worked for Raytheon as an architectural photographer. While there, he met his future wife, Rita. During this time, Doug Ebenstein served as an assistant project manager for the contractor Kippie Holman. Holman died in a plane crash. Doug Ebenstein Serves Kantor Family Center.
From the time that Doug Ebenstein became a full-time photographer for the Associated Press, he has always served as an education director for Kantor. Doug has also served as communications director for Kantor. Doug also served as communications director for the League of Conservation Physicians. These are only a few of the honors that Doug has received over the years. Doug began a career as a writer, editor and illustrator before becoming a professional photographer.
Doug Ebenstein’s work as an illustrator started when he was still in high school. He illustrated the works of other people, such as newspapers, but it wasn’t until the nineteen eighties that he decided to try his hand at drawing. As he went on to college, he continued to hone his skill. At the age of twenty, he began to illustrate advertising campaigns for various companies, which led him to focus primarily on comic book and bubble tea illustrations.
A couple of years later, Doug Ebenstein decided to try his hand at creating drawings and paintings as opposed to working within the commercial world. It was at this point in his career that he would create some of the most beloved characters in the world of cartoon and illustration. One particular series which he worked on was Batman. This led to the release of two Batman television shows. Both Batman the television show and the comics followed the same successful and dramatic story arc. Both cartoons lasted for numerous years, and are remembered today by millions of fans around the world.
One particular episode from Batman was “The Dark Knight”. This episode was one of the most well received films of all time and served as a box office smash. It is also widely considered to be one of the best Batman films. One of the most striking aspects of this movie was the amazing portrayal of the city and the villains it was faced with.
Among the other famous cartoonists who served as an assistant to Doug Ebenstein were Jack Tinkerbell, Glen Chanel, Tom Waltz and Bill Finger. While some of their works may be forgotten today, many others are considered classics. Many comic books and bubble tea collectors hold these titles. Doug Ebenstein is still today recognized as one of the most talented artists in the field of comic arts. He is also known for his wonderful illustrations.
In fact, it was Doug Ebenstein who drew Spiderman’s web on the first comic book that ever hit the American scene. To this day, it remains one of the most famous comic book panels ever drawn. Along with legendary comics artist Jack Kirby, Ebenstein created such memorable characters as Booster Gold, the Phantom, and Green Lantern. Although he only served as a staff artist for a few years, he left the industry in 1980. After leaving comics, he formed the world renowned animation company Dreamworks.
