My comics and zines

As a teenager I was nurtured on a steady diet of horror films, Surrealist art, heavy metal music, fantasy literature, and the works of Bill Sienkiewicz,  Ernst Fuchs, Mobeius and Bernie Wrightson. I am now interested in how the often-maligned genres of comix and cartoon art – with its long tradition of subversive humour and absurdism – might provide new opportunities for social criticism and understanding.
