My Bio
Raised on a steady diet of Tom & Jerry, Star Wars, Freddy Krueger and Marvel Comics since the late 70s, Steve Chanks has distilled the very best of his distorted pop culture view into a big titted, puss-filled, pulp daydream.

With a drawing style that's been described as Disney meets Mad Magazine, Steve Chanks has inked his way into such mags as Maxim, Revolver, and Guitar World and has clothed the fans of bands like Mastodon, Lamb of God, Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold.

Along with his best buds, Josh Bernstein and Erik Rodriquez, Steve Chanks is a pivotal member of the art mafia know as The #Number Foundation who are solely responsible for the ever politically uncorrect trash culture rag, Royal Flush Magazine.

Steve lives in scenic Queens, New York with his heart throb wife, Jessica and their Justin Beiber hating 9 year-old daughter, Claudia where they enjoy short walks, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, crap collecting and BBQing.
