I wanted to be a scientist.
When I was nine, I decided that an artist could make easier money. Sold my first oil portrait of a lady’s ballerina daughter for $20 in ‘64.
Discovered Dali in ‘67, and became a surrealist. Opened Studio KRK in Encinitas, SoCal in ‘81. Met Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh in ‘82 and became comrades-in-art. Started playing Theremin in ‘03 and formed the band Ken the Magic Corner God. First toy by 3-d Retro: MOE HAWK.
Met comedian Andy Dick last year, made plans to co-host his “new” TV show and scheduled to do a solo show at his new gallery: Dick’s. Working on two graphic novels, one with my brother Mark, and one written by Devo’s Gerald Casale. Future plans: designing and building DEVO ISLAND, backed by Elon Musk.
Lloyd Dangle grew up in Michigan and after attending the University of Michigan School of Art, tossed aside his BFA to draw cartoons for Michael Moore’s muckraking newspaper The Michigan Voice.
He is writer, designer, and artist whose works have appeared in over 100 magazines and newspapers of every type, from the crusty corporate mainstream to the altruistic not-for-profit, to the loftiest academic journals, to the bleeding subcommercial gutter. He is now universally regarded as a marketing genius for his branding of Airborne, the world’s number one cold remedy and one of the fastest selling products in retail history (according to Airborne).
His weekly comic strip Troubletown was first published in the San Francisco Bay Guardian in 1988 and grew to become a widely syndicated cartoon feature in alternative newsweeklies and lefty political magazines until he retired it in 2011. He has published several books and exhibited his work internationally.
Paul Rentler is an Artist, Designer, and Musician, from Columbus Ohio. His work is a mix of lo-fi photocopy techniques, collage, illustration, screenprinting, and mixed media techniques. The work focuses on image manipulation and collaging pop elements to create strange, distorted, sometimes comical imagery-heavy with grit and texture.
Mr Fullarton is a Scottish born, San Francisco based visual artist and illustrator. Because he is a man with very low expectations he is seldom disappointed and therefore lives a life filled with boundless joy. He has spent most of his somewhat checkered artistic career attempting to create a piece of artwork that doesn’t have words written on it. So far he has failed dismally. In his leisure time he enjoys a variety of smoked cheeses despite lingering doubts about their textures. Perhaps his most prized talent is his uncanny ability to stay out of the way.
Mr. Fullarton is represented by The Compound Gallery in sunny and scenic Oakland, California. A fine selection of Mr. Fullarton's works is available for purchase at very reasonable sums at The Compound Gallery's online shop.
