JimMahfood-FoodOne
Jim Mahfood
United States
Jim Mahfood aka Food One was born on March 29, 1975 in St. Louis, MO. He was raised on a steady diet of classic cartoons, comic books, Star Wars, and his mom’s eclectic vinyl record collection. He began his professional art career at age 15, working for Artline Studios under the tutelage of artist Lorenzo Lizana. At age 18, he left home and moved to Kansas City to attend the Kansas City Art Institute. There he met Mike Huddleston and formed the studio: 40oz Comics. A sacred bond was created, with Mike penciling and Jim inking, and the two produced hundreds of comic book pages together. Most of this material would never see the light of day. Frustrated with rejection, Jim started self-publishing his own work in 1995 with the first issue of Girl Scouts. This would eventually lead to him scoring his first big break in 1997 with Marvel Comics, writing and drawing the bizarre X-Men related Generation X Underground Special. And from there, Mahfood’s career has branched off into the fields of illustration, advertising, murals, fine art, animation, live art in nightclubs, and custom body-painting. He has worked for every major comic book company, and his freelance clients include:

Playboy, Disney, Armani, Nissan, NBC, Sony, Comedy Central, TIGI, MTV, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Tuff Gong, Titmouse, Cartoon Network, Spin Magazine, View Askew, Spectrum Illustration Annual, Star Wars Gamer, URB, The Hollywood Reporter, BPM, The Phoenix New Times, Rhymesayers Entertainment, Ubiquity Records, Hollywood Records, Indyground Entertainment, Mad Magazine, Heavy Metal, and more…

Highlights of his career include: illustrating director Kevin Smith’s Clerks comics, handling the art chores on the entire ad campaign for Colt 45 malt liquor in 2007-08, painting the murals on Comedy Central’s Sarah Silverman Show, illustrating the Kickpuncher comic book that was included in the Season 1 DVD of NBC’s hit show Community, illustrating and art-directing reggae legend Ziggy Marley’s MarijuanaMan project, and providing custom car art for Nissan’s new “Juke” Artist Series. His current projects include: illustrating custom bottles for Bed Head hair products, developing the animated show Disco Destroyer (with Scott Mosier and Joe Casey) for Titmouse and MTV’s Liquid Television, and providing all the art on the new Tank Girl series: Everybody Loves Tank Girl. Food One also continues to work on Los Angeles Ink Stains as an on-going, never-ending series, with new installments appearing on a somewhat regular basis on his website: www.jimmahfood.com. His popular podcast “The Beat Bee Sessions” (with co-host Jane Dope) can be downloaded for free at: thebeatbeesessions.libsyn.com/….
