Ron Regé Jr.
slowly but surely made a name for himself publishing his own mini-comics - like the first 8 issues of Yeast Hoist, which were photocopied. Issue #12, now all big-time published, collects various drawings and instant comics (unplanned, drawn/written on the spot) from sketchbooks and a few illustrations that were previously published in The New York Times. Regé's work has punk immediacy and energy, yet his simple line drawings are thoughtfully composed - one might even call them formal. His drawings, particularly the ones of nature and street scenes, are quite sweet. One drawing of a girl raging over a spilled ice cream cone is captioned "Sweetness and Bite," an accurate description of the entire book. His work is like a boy who will give you a dirty look and smirk, but will kiss you on the cheek when no one is looking.
