Steve's cartoon career got rolling with a seventeen issue run of his high octane, psychedelic/occult Dog Boy series in the 80's. He served as co-publisher and contributing artist for a twenty issue run of the Buzzard comics anthology in the '90s, while simultaneously dabbling with a strip about musically inclined insect men, entitled BugHouse.
Steve has published three BugHouse novels with Top Shelf Productions, BugHouse, Baja and Scalawag. BugHouse illuminates the joy of creating improvisational jazz, while detailing the pitfalls of addiction. Baja is a simple coming of age/love story, with a supernatural twist. Scalawag addresses the deep query we must all face: What is the worst thing you’ve ever done? And how do you come to terms with your own worst self?
Mr. Lafler resides in Portland Oregon with his wife Serena, their two kids, and his own worst self.
