Acne Rabble

Here's a primo example of the kinda wacky weirdness you can get involved in when you're a freelance artisté. Back in 1996 I had done a few T-shirt designs for a guy named Roberto, a just-outta-high-school kid with a real old style hustlin' make-a-buck attitude. Later he asked me to do these illustrations for some kinda acne treatment program he was gonna start peddling. I dunno if he ever actually got this project off the ground; I never saw the printed booklet he was planning and this was the last I heard from him but I certainly enjoyed the thought of being involved in some sort of patent medicine type operation. I do think acne is a worthwhile topic for artistic consideration and have plans to revisit the subject at some point. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!


  1. Scientists at NY University College of Medicine have shown that Niacinamide (aka Nicotinamide) is superior to antibiotics such as Clindamycin in controlling acne. Use Niapads – Nicotinamide pads for controlling acne. Niapads is a one step process providing exfoliation, skin lightening, pore cleansing and prevention of acne. Visit for details.

  2. Loving the illustrations. Old school comic art needs to come back.
