His celebrated self-published series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of cartoonists.

King-Cat Classix and Map of My Heart, published in 2007/2009, offer a comprehensive overview of the zine’s first sixty-one issues, while Thoreau at Walden (2008) is a poetic expression of the great philosopher’s experience and ideals.

Last year, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and a lot of volunteer hours from Emily Delabreu, ExposeKenosha launched the Windows of Downtown Program and displayed artwork by local artists in the empty buildings windows of downtown Kenosha.
We moved this effort forward in a new and exciting way with our latest project, “Chalk Talk Kenosha.” Chalk Talk is not only an art project, it is a community-wide, collaborative effort, based on the photography of Minneapolis-based artist Wing Yung Huie. Last year during his residency at UW-Parkside, Huie developed open-ended questions to help students learn about one another. In collaboration with UW-Parkside and KUSD, he conducted workshops with Kenosha area art teachers and students. Students participating in the workshops asked one another a set of specific questions and wrote their answers on black chalkboards, and were then photographed with their messages. Continuing this process, students from Tremper and Bradford High Schools and Harborside Academy used Huie’s technique to make photographs. Additionally, Chalk Talk workshops were hosted by the Boys and Girls Club-Kenosha, UW-Parkside, and the Kenosha Literacy Council.
These photographs are currently exhibited at UW-Parkside’s Fine Art Gallery after being on display in the windows of downtown Kenosha businesses.
We thought that we were being original (at least in Kenosha) when we looked around and borrowed the idea of displaying local artwork in downtown windows – but we were mistaken, and how! Continue reading
