Comic from the sleeve of De La Soul's 'De La Soul Is Dead'.

Al Callabrass is an American artist based on Long Island, New York City. He is mostly active as a clay artist, specializing in miniature sculptures and hand crafted jewelry, ornaments, and picture frames since the late 1980s.

De La Soul
In 1991, he drew the comic strip inside the gatefold sleeve of De La Soul's album 'De La Soul Is Dead' (1991). The comic is based on a series of sketches on the record, involving three bullies who find a cassette version of the album in the garbage can and comment on how bad the group is. Another artist who once drew a comic strip for the sleeve of one of De La Soul's albums was Michael Uman.
