David Alvarado has been self-publishing his zine of printed ephemera for six issues. Now the collected Dirty Hands will show the complete illustrative works of an artist that’s bound to make waves for years to come. Walking donuts, walls of felt puppets, talking teeth — no one does the absurd and bizarre quite like Alvarado.
“David Alvarado’s drawings both mystify and humor me. David’s work has a seemingly innocuous look and feel, but there’s often times an unsettling feeling there as well. He has already cultivated a distinct vision and it’s a treat to see so much of it in this book.”
– Onsmith (contributor to The Best American Comics 2011 and 2014)
