has anyone ever told you your style is very reminiscent of classic underground comix? Not exactly R. Crumb but I can totally see your work hanging with his back in the day. It's refreshing to see. Guess you can tell I'm not a fan of the mainstream.
Thanks! Underground comics have made a great impression on my work, actually. When I went to college, I took some comic strip classes under one Frank Stack, who was one of the first American underground cartoonists. He did comics such as "The New Adventures of Jesus", "American Splendour", and "Our Cancer Year". Not only did he leave an enormous impression on me (he was the one who taught me how to ink my work) but he introduce me to a number of great underground cartoonists, like R. Crumb.
I consider my style a hybrid of underground comics and the Japanese animated American cartoons of my youth.
