John Porcellino is the creator of King-Cat Comics and Stories (1989-Present). His Spit and a Half record label released vinyl and CDs by The Felt Pilots and The Cannanes.
John Porcellino was trained as a painter. In the late-1980's, he adopted a deliberately "naive" style in hopes of making his artwork more accessible.
From 1992-2000, John Porcellino ran the Spit and a Half zines and comics distro.
John Porcellino currently lives in Denver, CO.
