Eyeball Kid

Tom Waits digs comics, well kinda. His friend Nicolas Cage gave him a copy of Eddie Campbell's Eyeball Kid on the set making a movie. Waits dug it so much that he wrote a song about the eyeball bloke on Mule Variations. Here's my take on the Tom's Waits song.

This is Eddie Campbell's Eyeball Kid

City on the beach

There was a time when I toyed with images of statues, here's one with the image of the ladies head from Sugar on my Tongue doodle. Inside the statue is a small city standing on a beach.

Bonefish was the second comic, named from an Animal Collective song. Looking back at the story, a little too long but loved the style of Rada's tail. It had much more personality than the face and body.


Here's the last drawing from the European book.

Kafka's Love Letter

Another European layout, my only problem with this picture is that a Kafka bug would never hang out with a woman like that.

Happy Father's Day

Laugh Comics Digest Magazine # 81
By Sam Kujava, Doug Crane & othersVG.
For this blog I would like to talk more about my influences, people who change my life through their work. But before I talk about Jack Kirby, Van Gogh, Bruno Premiani and Alex Toth, it starts with my father Sam Kujava.
I was born and breed in a small town, Green Bay, Wisconsin, and unless your a football fan there's was not a lot going on in terms of art. My dad was a writer for Archie comics, who had a vast collection of comics, pulp novels, and old movies. It was during those times that I fell in love with those artists. I remember picking up, reading and still enjoying a cover less comic of Doom Patrol #95. Without my dad insight to the arts I would of never became an artist.
He is also a brilliant storyteller and some of my fondest memories growing up was watching him draw and plot his stories. The process is so simple that all you ever need is a sheet of paper, pencil and pen . I will be doing Rada comics for the rest of my life, and because of that joy I own so much love for my father.
Happy Father's Day, dad.

Death don't have no mercy in this land

  1. The title comes from Reverend Gary Davis' Holy Blues. This was the first story that I ever work on which came before the Crumbbums comic strips. Not one of my best in terms of storytelling, but I do still love the fourth page and the ending. Below is a extra two panels of the comic found by my father ( years after the comic was completed) given to me on a Mpls visit to Fall-Con. Thanks, pop!

Lust for life and the Snake

Many beautiful woman in Europe, here are some of the ladies from the trip.
