COMIC BOOK ARTIST
About Larry Welz
From 1969–1970, his work was featured regularly in Yellow Dog, a comics anthology published by the Print Mint in Berkeley, California. A partial list of additional comic books from the era featuring his work includes San Francisco Comic Book, Captain Guts, Funnybook, Bakersfield Kountry Komics and American Flyer Funnies.
Evolving out of early prototype stories in Funnybook and Bakersfield Kountry Komics, Welz created Cherry Poptart in the early 1980s. Cherry quickly became his most successful and well-known comic book series, with 22 issues and a variety of collections, posters, stickers and tattoos.
After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Welz and his wife Sharon moved to Roswell, New Mexico, and then to Albuquerque, where he continues his involvement in both comics and commercial artwork.
In 2016, Welz drew the front and back cover for Marvin Garden’s album 1968, as well as contributing an original cartoon to the liner notes.
