Born and raised in the Boston area, Keith Knight was weaned on a steady diet of sports, racism, and Warner Bros. cartoons. After graduating with a degree in graphic design from Salem State College, Knight hopped in a car and drove out to San Francisco. It is there that he discovered the world of underground cartooning. Knight's two weekly comic strips, The 'K' Chronicles and '(th)ink', can be found in various publications nationwide, including Salon.com, the Funny Times, and Boston's Weekly Dig. Knight is also a regular contributor to Mad and ESPN the Magazine. Described as a combination of 'Spike Lee, Damon Wayans, Gary Larson and the lead singer of The Red Hot Chili Peppers,' Knight also raps with the San Francisco band The Marginal Prophets.
