Aorta VI: Jared Blunk, PJ Kneisel & Sam Graham

RR Sideshow: Guest Contributing Artist: Jared Blunk

Terrible Twos is an original, traditionally-drawn two frame daily comic-strip by LA artists Pj Kneisel and JTMB.

Started in late 2009, the gritty and often esoteric Terrible Twos began their online appearance meekly, but have since gained a small, but dedicated following; probably due to their offbeat humor and unflinchingly graphic art.

**** ******

The comic’s two frame approach allows both artists to contribute to each strip, making every piece a fully collaborative exercise with an often unexpected and inspired punchline.

The entire Terrible Twos catalog can be veiwed at the Aorta VI art collective blog @ AortaVI.blogspot.com – where new strips are posted daily.
