About Squid

Dave Cohen (born 1960 Kansas City, Missouri) is a sculptor, illustrator, type designer and musician. Known in the lowbrow art scene as "Squid", Dave has been a key figure in the Tiki revival scene, having sculpted master models for over 200 Tiki mugs. A longtime fascination with hand-lettering from the comics, toys and packaging of his youth led Dave to dive into type design after being introduced to designer Stuart Sandler in 2006. He now partners with Stuart under the Sideshow and Neapolitan Foundry names.

His current ceramic mug offerings, including zombie and monster mugs can be found on ebay under seller name cartoonz1.
