Let Them Eat Cake: The Gross Food Porn of Craig Latchaw

Advertisements titillate our taste buds with moist, succulent food porn — but what’s really in that burger? Somewhere between a punk-rock Harvey Kurtzman and R. Crumb guesting on “Top Chef” are Craig Latchaw’s gleefully gross gourmet recipes, fully seasoned with all the farmworker abuses, assembly-line injuries, product impurities, and accumulated factory filth that a capitalist food industry can churn out.

Artist Bio

Under the influence of 90’s cartoons and culture, Youngstown, Ohio-based artist Craig Latchaw Jr., focuses on illustration, comics, and all things “gross and slimy.” Latchaw is also a painting instructor, a trivia-night host, and maintains a lively set of social-media channels covering comics, comedy and entertainment. “These illustrations are meant to gross out the viewer and make one realize that most of what we put in our bodies is garbage,” he says, and were featured at the SOAP Gallery in Youngstown.

Ever wonder what it's like to have bi-polar depression in one of United States' most depressing cities? Well now you can, Craig Latchaw Jr. AKA. ZombieTurtleComics gives you a window into his every day to day, with his autobiographical comics done in a couple different cartooning styles. See him as a floating head trying to figure out how to deal with getting older, a slight addiction to beer and making important life choices, like quitting a real job to focus on cartooning. See him as a failed super hero who never seems to accomplish his life goals as his bad decisions ruin his already crappy life(very loosely based on reality), or just see him as he sees himself making sense of the weirdness around him, as he deals with OCD, IBS and a bothersome roommate! These amusing yet sad comics lamely come to life before your very eyes, with every poorly drawn line and half-assed scenery! Oh, and Craig is Co-Creator of an unnamed underground alternative Zine, and co-host of a ridiculous YouTube channel called Spare Time!
