The Workshop of Filthy Creation: The Art of Johnny Ace and Kali Verra
Johnny Ace and his partner Kali Verra worked in Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s studios creating 2D and 3D imagery for the revered Big Daddy during the 1990’s (Johnny started in the 80’s).
Both of these dedicated artists draw their inspiration from murky, monster filled swamp water comic books, hot rods and rock and roll.
Their combined oeuvre is now available for the first time in a book entitled The Workshop of Filthy Creation: The Art of Johnny Ace and Kali Verra, published by Dark Horse Books out of Milwaukie, Oregon. (darkhorse.com)
In The Workshop of Filthy Creation, Ace and Kali give you an intimate walk through their lives in art. The book includes everything from Johnny’s days in the Houston, Texas skate punk poster art scene, to their days with Roth and up to the present.
You won’t find a pair of people more dedicated to the cause of monster hot rod art nor will you find a pair that works harder.
If you’ve ever enjoyed Rat Fink, pin striping, those old great muscle car tees of the 60’s and 70’s or horror comics then you owe yourself a treat this Christmas…put it on the list and send it to the North Pole.
