Sammy Harkham
Sammy Harkham
Sammy Harkham was born in Los Angeles on May 21st 1980. When he was 14 he moved with his family to Sydney Australia. In Australia, he discovered the work of Jamie Hewlett, Dan Clowes, Kim Deitch, Renee French, Chris Ware, Julie Doucet and Jim Woodring. Inspired, Harkham started making his own comics and a zine, Kramers Ergot which has evolved into one of the most highly influential comics anthologies being published today. After high school he went to CalArts, studying experimental animation and filmmaking, but dropped out to focus on comics.
His comic strip Poor Sailor, originally published in Kramers Ergot 4, was subsequently included in The Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2004 and has been published in French, Korean, and Italian. He was nominated in 2002 for an Ignatz Award for 'Promisng New talent', and Kramers Ergot has been favorably reviewed and placed on numerous best of the year list’s including the LA Weekly, Time.com, Dazed And Confused, The Comics Journal, and Publisher’s Weekly.
Harkham currently lives in Los Angeles working on his comic series Crickets and the next volume of Kramers Ergot.
