Bof the Skinhead (1988)

There were many more strips that didn’t get perfected, but this was the original and classic. Pretty much written by Keith Stimely and drawn by me in low-tech steel-nib pen points and Winsor-Newton shellac-laced India ink, summer or fall of ’88.

Why “Bof”? I dunno

This partly reflected Keith’s notions of what the East Portland (OR) skinheads were like. Meanwhile his friend Adam Parfrey was pushing a hoax in L.A., about fag-bashers who called themselves the Blue Boys. Good times!
