Jim Mahfood, aka FOOD One, is a prolific neo-contemporary illustrator and painter whose work shows up in all kinds of odd places including his own 40 Oz Comics, Spiderman books for Marvel, Kevin Smith’s Clerks Comics, a mural on the Sarah Silverman Show, a brand new Simpsons collaboration with graff artist Kofie, on apparel for boutique brand King Duce, and other hotbeds of contemporary youth culture. A good night of drinkin’ and drawin’ for the accomplished comic artist includes live painting on naked girls in his local LA hotspots and around the country. I’ve painted with FOOD One, and when I say prolific I mean this guy’s got a lightning fast quickdraw with spraypaint, markers, and brushes like you wouldn’t believe.
