Jaime Crespo is a native Californian who has been a published cartoonist for well over 35 years and has had his comics appear in several anthologies over the years (Monkey Wrench, Buzzard, Backwoods, White Buffalo Gazette to name a few) as well as in many magazines and weekly papers. He is also part of the Latino Comics Expo. Focusing on bio/auto bio stories (ala Harvey Pekar) he has had his comic strip, Slice O’ Life (later shorted to Slices) in weeklies around the US. Upon the downsizing and in most cases the collapse of some weekly papers, he then returned to self-publishing an on-going comic book title, Tortilla in which he may tell longer stories outside of the four-panel comic strip format. Currently, Jaime is in the midst of his much-anticipated first graphic novel, Turk Street Serenade, which focuses on his time spent as a janitor/maintenance man in a San Francisco Tenderloin District SRO hotel during the mid-1980’s.
