Strange New Worlds by Dave Perillo
Dave Perillo is an illustrator/cartoonist who has done work for Marvel, Disney Television Animation, Mondo, Acme Archives, Dark Hall Mansion, Mad Magazine and Target. He has also designed tour posters for the bands the Aquabats, Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, Flight of the Concords, My Morning Jacket and others, and had his art featured at Gallery 1988, Spoke Art Gallery, Gallery Nucleus, LTD Gallery, etc. Perillo was born in 1974, the same year Wham-O introduced the Slip-n-Slide, which he doubts was a coincidence. Though he originally wanted to grow up to be Ziggy – yes, that Ziggy – he became inspired to become an artist after developing an affinity for, among other things, 1950s sci-fi movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna Barbera, The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock. He lives in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania.
