Dave Dugan

Below are several pieces of miscellaneous art by Dave Dugan, creator of the webcomic Zen Comix.  I got these directly from Dave, who is very talented and contributed a LOT of great art to the site (thanks, Dave!).

 

 

Great Christmas card design by Dave Dugan.  Some history behind the art, in Dave's own words:  "[This] is a Christmas card design that I originally drew in 1985, but I have periodically used it again.  The last time I used it was for The Iowa City Press Citizen newspaper a couple of years ago."

 

Print of a newspaper ad for radio station KGNU (www.kgnu.org) in Boulder, Colorado, by Dave Dugan.

Print of a t-shirt design by Dave Dugan, done in 1987.  Some history behind the art, as described by Dave:  "[This piece] was a t-shirt design for the Cystic Fibrosis Walk-a-thon in 1987 in NY.  It was a contest that I won.  The prize for winning was a small, portable TV, about the size of a deck of cards, and I still have it!"

 

Cassette cover for the Boston band "Gravyhead" by Dave Dugan.

 

Cassette covers for Thelonious Phonk by Dave Dugan.

 

Incredible original art for a poster design by Dave Dugan, done in 1992.  Some history behind the art, as described by Dave:  "[This piece] was a poster design for the Boston band 'Who Be Dat?', but it went unused because the band broke up.  The drummer for 'Who Be Dat' was Jeff Clemens, currently the drummer of G. Love and Special Sauce, and the bass player, Frank Swart plays in Post Junk Trio.  The frontman for the band, Nate, is currently in Ohio watching the river flow."

 

 

One of Dave's earliest drawings (literally).  Some background behind the art, as described by Dave:  "I grew up in the Boston area and started drawing early.  There was a show on local TV called Drawing Nature with Captain Bob.  He would draw different animals every week.  He was slow enough so you could follow along with him.  I would draw on any available paper, such as the back of my brother's homework or the flyer for my Mom's run for a spot on the School Committee.  The toucan and the snake would be the oldest drawings."

 

 

Another of Dave's earliest drawings (see the story behind the piece in the description for the "Toucan" picture above).

 

Also, check out the gallery pages for his two unpublished newspaper strips, Marty Python and the Holy Grill and Duck Soup.  Check out the gallery page for his webcomic, Zen Comix, as well!
