Kenn Minter's Webpage
The work of Kenn Minter gives one the feeling of the very familiar and the absolutely original all at the same time. In part he seems to be channeling equal amounts of indie legend Chris Ware and Marvel humorist Fred Hembeck with maybe just a little R. Crumb sneaking in.

It's just like your life...if your life had a giant bunny (he's not a rabbit) named Oliver, goblins that kill small animals and moments that run from the mundane to the wacky both in and out of Kenn's head. He even allows guest artists to play in this world but it all still has his overwhelming sensibility.
