Like Bruce Wayne, Erol lives a secret double life (except he is not rich). By day, he teaches at a respected catholic secondary school and by night, he draws strange demented-demonic cartoon-creatures (typically with a felt-tipped pen). His dark and surreal characters are influenced by what he often drew as a child; 化け物 日本的な, the legendary cartoons of the 1990’s (such as Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy + others... and as a result, the legendary Felix, Fleisher, early Disney-Iwerks and WB cartoons that came before them).
Erol also draws awesome stuff for awesome bands [ LP/EP covers, merch, gig flyers/band posters and SKATEBOARDS @ boardpusher.com/erolzendis ]. Erol's work has been featured in Chaotic Utopian Magazine, on Castle Face Records, Fuzzy-Sun, Boardpusher (Deck of the Week), ...And Justice for Art, official RSASA Postcards and the iconic 臭いうんち 美術館 in Tokyo.
