Josh Burggraf is one of those dudes who piss me off at how amazing and fast he is.
You've seen the poster he made for PACC (just scroll down a few posts).
I've worked with him on a handful of books and he is always the first person done with the most impressive detailed insane stories. i mean even his shitty napkin scrawls are amazing!
His work ethic is that of a sweatshop employee of the month that is a anal perfectionist. His work in the 3D anthology MATH FICTION was a huge stand out (literally and figuratively). He's also graced the pages of SECRET PRISON and the louisvile based anthology CATCH-UP and watch out for him in the JOSH BAYER edited anthology SUSPECT DEVICE premiering at PACC!
Josh will have his Grawlix nominated MONGOLOIDS REVENGE on hand as well as his new book KID SPACE HEATER. I saw an advance copy of kid space heater, and i must say, not only is it the best work he's ever done but it might be the best new work ive seen ALL YEAR. like serious.
his work is an amazing mix of urban lifestyle, jack kirby sci-fi, animal people, and weirdness that makes you think if theres some sort of deeper meaning to it all, with a style that teeters on mainstream work and complete underground indy master, in short his work is genius.
Come by PACC and get Josh to sign copies of his books now before he's to fucking huge and famous to ever come back.
