R.K. Sloane (early 1950s)-2006


Word has slowly seeped out that the artist and cartoonist R.K. Sloane died in a Los Angeles hospital October 20, one source describing the cause as recently-diagnosed lung cancer. Sloane was perhaps best known as a popular painter of luridly-colored outsider art-type scenes, and a as a poster artist, but he was also known as an artist behind Ed Roth's late '80s/early '90s Rat Fink Comix and as the maker of several short comics works, to my memory mostly in the 1980s, including a stand-alone anthology from Starhead. You can find samples of his short comics work here.
