Fred Noland/The Funhaus
Fred Noland draws from a deep well of inspiration ranging from the Expressionists to Underground Comics. His illustrations have appeared in the numerous publications. His comics have been featured in the Cartoon Art Museum, and the Oakland Museum at the OAK installation. He has also taken part in group shows at San Francisco’s SOMARTS and Amaru Galleries and RPS in Oakland. As a cartoonist, he has produced a series of increasingly innovative and eccentric minis. His comic, Black Sheep features his most ambitious work yet, the six-part “Neighborhood of the Beast” explores the darker side of suburbia. Other highlights include the Southern Gothic Midnight Creep and his self proclaimed “jam comic from hell” Mantequilla del Pato (with the incomparable Trevor Alixopulos). Fred resides in Oakland. When he’s not working you can find him cycling through the East Bay hills.
