Since the early 1990s, Mike Flugennock has produced over two hundred political cartoons and posters that have been the favorite of popular resistance movements ranging from those opposing war in Iraq and Afghanistan to globalization, Occupy and other movements, such as the recent successful legalization of home cultivated marijuana in Washington, DC. He has served on the editorial board of the DC Independent Media Center, illustrated the covers of The Progressive and Alternative Press Review, and has been featured in the Washington Post and Washington City Paper Arts section for his art promoting mass protests.
Born in 1957 and raised on classic Saturday morning cartoons and ‘60s and ‘70s underground “comix”, Flugennock works in a distinctive style which has inspired readers and activists to “flypaste” his art in solidarity with his statements in city streets around the world.
