Jim Evans, also known as Taz, was one of the trailblazers founding the visual art movement known as underground comics. Early on, he began creating comic strips for the Los Angeles Free Press and later moved to Hawaii where he contributed to Sufer magazine. He later was commissioned by Playboy to do silkscreen portraits of celebrities including David Letterman, Marilyn Monroe, Joe Montana and SylvesterStallone.
Evans’ work doing rock show posters in the late 80’s for bands such as Pearl Jam,Aerosmith, Metallica and Neil Young led him to create his new moniker and company, T.A.Z. His art has spanned across many mediums including posters for film and rock, comics, books and album covers. Evans has participated in numerous limited edition and gallery shows, and recently has expanded his career to include fine art, murals and street art.
