Cartoonist Bruce Eric Kaplan (BEK) draws connections from his life and the past to create comics. Human consciousness contains two types of memory.
The LA Weekly tends to publish cartoons more aligned with BEK's sense of humor. Interpreting a joke requires a myriad of brain functions to happen in an instant.
A post-adolescent search for meaning drives BEK. Self-consciousness is not limited to human begins.
BEK’s balanced cartoons come from a compulsive, all-encompassing worldview. While writing a tribute to his parents, he became hyper aware of his own shortcomings as a father.
BEK's childhood was chaotic; he shares his emotions appropriately with his children. In his memoir, his mother reads as a joyless character which BEK feels is inaccurate.
Television was the primary parent in BEK’s home. His drive to become a successful cartoonist came from an obsession of living the life he saw on the screen.
