SHARY FLENNIKEN

Cartoonist, editor, author and screenwriter Shary Flenniken is the daughter of a Rear Admiral in the United States Navy, and was raised in Alaska, Panama and Seattle. In 1970 she met cartoonist Dan O’Neill at the Sky River Rock Festival, and became a member of the infamous art collective The Air Pirates, which included Bobby London, Ted Richards and Gary Hallgren. The group produced three issues of Air Pirates Funnies, Disney parodies for which the corporation sued them in a case that dragged out for nine years. Shary is best known for her irreverent comic strip Trots & Bonnie, about precocious preteens, which appeared in various underground comics and in National Lampoon magazine from 1972 to 1990. Her graphic stories and comic strips have appeared in Details, Premiere, Harvey, and Mad magazines, and in the books When a Man Loves A Walnut, Nice Guys Sleep Alone, and Seattle Laughs. She is currently teaching comedy writing and cartooning while working on a book of fairy tales and a series of novels that she claims are “not even remotely autobiographical.” You can see more and purchase original art at www.sharyflenniken.com.
