Cheech Wizard’s Big Book of Me

Vaughn Bode

Vaughn Bodé created Cheech in 1956 at the age of 15 and the character remained a constant companion for the rest of Bodé’s life, surfacing in his college paper, underground comix, the National Lampoon, and ultimately beyond into the cosmically collective world of graffiti and Hip Hop. Irascible and sarcastic as he is iconic, Cheech Wizard is a lascivious con-man who nevertheless possesses, despite his transgressions (or because of them?), some degree of cosmic insight. He’s died and been reborn. You may recognize his likeness from your friend’s tattoo or your friendly neighborhood tagger’s work. He is Vaughn Bodé, the cartoon gooroo…or is he? The Big Book of Me brings this elemental, pop-essential corpus of transcendent art to the masses collecting all of the Cheech Wizard comics in a single volume.
