This collects the 1960s–1970s surf cartoons—and more—of an artist best known for his Shrimpenstein TV show.
Michael Dormer is synonymous with the California surf counterculture in the 1960s and 1970s. This is the first-ever retrospective of the artist, culled from his own archives. It collects all of his character Hot Curl's comic strips for the magazine SurfToons, his designs for his TV show, a vast selection of his fine art, and other surprises.
