I met Keith Knight at Patrecon a couple of weeks ago after his panel on navigating financial independence as a creator. I loved what he had to say on the panel, and of course love the way he uses his art to address racism. We talk here about his work, his music, his exciting news with Hulu, and how he has put together his career as an independent artist.
Keith Knight is an American cartoonist and musician. Presenting his unique take on the militarization of the nation’s police force, and the unchecked killing of unarmed citizens, Knight’s cartoons are infused with urgency, humor, satire, politics, and race. His work is designed to provoke constructive, civil dialogue amongst people young and old, left and right, of all colors and orientations. His regular feature The K Chronicles appears in various outlets, including DailyKos and previously appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, while (Th)ink is published on several newspapers and websites. A syndicated daily strip for United Media, The Knight Life, was launched in 2008. Knight is also the artist for two strips appearing in Mad, “Father O’Flannity’s Hot Tub Confessions” and “Bully Baby”.
