Junkwaffel Vol. 1

Vaughn Bode

Vaughn Bodé (pronounced “bo-dee”) is considered the king in the world of graphitti/aerosol art. His vast imagination gave birth to entire universes and characters, including Cheech Wizard, Junkwaffel, and many more. Although he passed away in 1975, before the graffiti scene even took off, Bodé’s legacy was cemented when graffiti greats like Kel 139 and Dondi actively borrowed from and paid tribute to the underground great. More recently, his work has been referenced in song by hip hop legends like the Beastie Boys. As such, Bodé occupies a truly unique niche in the world of underground comics, embraced by both the hippie counterculture of the 1960s as well as the hip hop community of the 1990s.
