About the Author

Bathed in the cathode ray thrum of 1960s television, Shaky Kane nurtured a deep love for Americana, in particular the four-color comic books displayed wedged into the spinner racks of British newsagents. Inspired by the DIY ethic of the early punk movement, Shaky contributed to the burgeoning small press scene before finding a regular spot drawing for British music paper The NME. Shaky's work found a home in a whole host of popular British comic strip publications during the late 1980s to the early 1990s, including Deadline, Revolver, Judge Dredd the Megazine, and 2000 AD. Returning to comics in 2010, Shaky collaborated with writer David Hine on the highly acclaimed Bulletproof Coffin series for Image Comics. Finding a new readership and a reappraisal of his art, brought about by the growth of online communications, Shaky has produced artwork for a growing number of comic book publications including The Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred, Cowboys and Insects (David Hine), Elephant Men, The Beef (Richard Starkings) Last Driver (Chris Baker), That's Because You're a Robot (David Quantick), Cap'n Dinosaur (Kek-W), Weird Work (Jordan Thomas), and has teamed up with Vice magazine regular Krent Able on the oversize anthology Kane and Able. True to his early artistic inspirations, Shaky continues drawing for independent publications to this day, and is regularly published on both sides of the Atlantic.
