from Drool Comix, by Ned Sonntag

Ned Sonntag studied animation at the Pratt Institute in New York, where he graduated in 1973. He was involved with the underground comix scene, and contributed to magazines like The New York Ace (an East Village Other offshoot), Occult Laff-Parade and Young Lust. Sonntag made a graphic contribution to 'ProJunior’ (Kitchen Sink Press, 1971), a one-shot comic book paying homage to Don Dohler's character ProJunior. In 1975 his science fiction strip 'Glittering Skyline of Marsport' was serialized for TV and a year later he started working for Marvel Comics. There he worked on several comics such as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik's 'Howard the Duck' and 'Savage Sword of Conan!'. At the same time, Sonntag made illustrations and cover art. In 1984, he was employed as an advertising artist on 'Betty Boop' franchise. Originally created by the Fleischer Brothers in 1930, the sexy cartoon character was featured in the newspaper comic 'Betty Boop & Felix' (1984-1988), written and drawn by Brian, Greg, Morgan and Neal Walker. However, Sonntag had no involvement in this comic strip, only merchandising art, distributed by King Features.

Sonntag moved to Chatham, MA with his wife Katy in 1991, still illustrating and painting for several magazines and even theater companies. In 1999, he started studying Photoshop and Webdesign to bring his art and animation skills to the Web. One of the things he has done since is 'Cavegrrl'.
