-Publisher/Creator of Monkeygong Productions. Home of Sojourners, Technopolis, comics anthology White Rabbit Magazine, The Secret Origin of Dylan Drake and more. (all titles and characters copyright Kraig Rasmussen and Monkeygong 2017.)
-As a comic book illustrator my emphasis is on Science Fiction, (which becomes more science fact by the day), and historical period epics. Both genres have proven to be so laden with allegory and metaphor, that my study often includes deeper and deeper symbolism, referring me to the likes of Jung, Freud, Campbell, Lao Tzu and more. In addition, I have recently been immersed in the study of propaganda art and media manipulation.
