About Ron CobbRon Cobb is an American cartoonist who was mostly active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was known for his political-social cartoons which were published in underground newspapers all over the world. Later in his career he reinvented himself as a film concept artist for various Hollywood science fiction and fantasy films.
In 1965 Cobb returned to his civilian life. He decided to become a cartoonist, but his initial work was rejected by Hugh Hefner's Playboy. He found a less censor-heavy Environment in the underground newspaper the Los Angeles Press. Cobb's cartoons were notable for their thought-provoking and wry criticism of the Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon administration, pollution, racism, militarism, poverty, consumerism, religion, nuclear energy, the Watergate affair and the Vietnam war. Their anti-establishment attitude perfectly incapsulated the spirit of the times and therefore they were featured in various sister publications of the Los Angeles Press and many other left-wing magazines all across the globe. They appeared among others in the Berkeley Barb, the Chicago Seed, the East Village Other, Lot's Wife, and Farrago. Cobb also illustrated covers for the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland. Cobb stayed with The Los Angeles Reader until 1970. His work was published in six compilation books: 'RCD-25' (1967), 'Mah Fellow Americans' (1968), 'Raw Sewage' (1971), 'My Fellow Americans' (1971), 'The Cobb Book' (1975) and 'Cobb Again' (1978).
