So there are two things going on here. Snuff has obviously drunk so much that he’s in a black out. When you’re in a black out you don’t know you are. The people around you don’t know you are because you act normal (though tipsy). But your brain can’t make the memories of what you’re

This detail is of an illustration I originally did for R. Crumb’s Weirdo back in the mid 80’s. It depicts a hapless knucklehead digging in the trash for a tossed out winning lottery ticket. The background is of a Lower East Side fantasia including a piece of graffiti of Rosie the Robot by 80’s East Village painter, Kenny Scharf. Like a lot of other fools, I bought lottery tickets when I lived in Hoboken and was a poor starving cartoonist. This version was from a limited edition print by Rotland Press. Sorry folks, these are all sold out. But if you want prints for sale check out this page.
Here’s a bunch of character sketches I did for a French production company’s cartoon GET BLAKE. My partner, Antoine and I sold the show that ran for a season. But that’s another story. With these sketches I was trying all kinds of different shapes in order to find the main character. None of these versions made it to the final. But I like the energy of all these goofy figures on the same page.
Hey Underworlders, I want to say thank you for making 2016 one of the most fun years for me and Underworld. This past year on my book tour for Underworld, Hoboken to Hollywood (still available from Fanatgraphics Books if you haven’t yet bought a copy) I traveled to Portland, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, Jersey City, Madrid and Majorca in Spain! I had a wonderful book signing in my now hometown of Los Angeles that was a blast. I was so happy to meet everyone that came out — really, I get a little choked up. I took a break from writing and drawing Underworld this past year, but starting in 2017 I’ll be banging out weirdness and gags and posting them here on my website. I’ve started a store here and will be adding new designs every few months. Originals for sale starting around summer. My secret weapon is Bridie MacDonald who designed my book, designs my website, and is spearheading the Underworld merchandize. She’s amazing! Drop me a line and say hi to Bridie too. See you in the future! Kaz

Is it weird? I’ve always loved freckles. I had ‘em as a kid. Still have ‘em on my shoulders. I like the word. Freckles. It’s fun to say. But mostly I liked girls with freckles. A few years ago I was trying to explain it to a friend when I said that I liked that
