Keith Knight is a cartoonist.
Keith Knight was born and raised in the Boston area. Weaned on a steady diet of Star Wars, hip-hop, racism and Warner Bros. cartoons, Knight drew comics instead of paying attention in school. After graduating from college with a useless degree in graphic design, Knight drove out to San Francisco in the early '90s and began taking drugs. It was here in the Bay Area where Knight developed his trademark poorly rendered, barely thought-out, last-minute cartooning style that has amused dozens for over a decade.
His work has appeared in various publications, including Salon.com, The L.A. Weekly, The Funny Times, PULSE! magazine, and MH-18.
His regular feature The K Chronicles appears in various outlets, including DailyKos and previously appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, while (Th)ink is published in several newspapers and websites. A syndicated daily strip for United Media, The Knight Life, was launched in 2008. Knight is also the artist for two strips appearing in Mad, "Father O'Flannity's Hot Tub Confessions" and "Bully Baby".
In 2007, The K Chronicles won the Harvey Kurtzman Award for Best Syndicated Comic Strip.
The K Chronicles has won the Glyph Award Best Comic Strip in 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010.
In 2010, Knight was presented a Comic-Con Inkpot Award for career achievement at Comic-Con.
Knight also appeared in The Marginal Prophets, a hip-hop band.
