Kevin Quigley is a painter and cartoonist living in Newport, N.J. He started painting at age 40, studying with Pat Witt at the Barn Studio of Art. His paintings have appeared in group and solo exhibitions in South Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York. Quigley’s comics and cartoons have appeared in books, magazines, and newspapers throughout the world. His 1997 book, Big Place Comics, was that year’s recipient of the prestigious Xeric Award. That same year he edited a landmark collection of Japanese alternative manga, Comics Underground Japan (Blast Books, 1997). From 1998 to 2012, Quigley collaborated with writer Richard Samuelson on over 1,000 gag cartoons, under the title To Whom it May Concern. Quigley’s ongoing strip, June Bug Vs. Hurricane, is featured in the requisite online magazine, Rumpus.
I think I have the perfect talent for making pictures in the 21st century in the same way that people say he has the perfect face for radio. Not to say anything goes, but that the time is ripe for the wayward, the venturous, and just a little shot-out.
