Using the name Weiner, he began illustrating and cartooning for several publications, such as Screw, Punk Magazine, Comical Funnies, Stop and Weirdo. In the early 1980s, together with Peter Bagge, he published 'The Wacky World of Ken Weiner and Peter Bagge'. He married and moved to Minnesota in 1986, where he changed his name to Ken Avidor. In 1998, he was asked to create his first ecological comic 'Sunny and Friends'. A year later, he started his comic 'Roadkill Bill' in the alternative weekly Pulse. In November 2001, the first 'Roadkill Bill' collection appeared at Car Busters Press.
