Kenny Be's Comic Colfax: A Strip Down Memory Lane (pt. 2)

Artwork by Kenny Be

The Colfax Avenue comic above was drawn in the summer of 1994 while sitting in the "bitch seat" of Robin Chotzinoff's motorcycle. Robin and I were traversing the entire strip – from Aurora to Golden. While she interviewed, I made sketches of a person and/or a place at each stop.

Back in the studio, I drew together the place drawings to a singular image that captured the character of the street. With the sketches of the people made at each of our stops, I drew portraits next to the street where we stopped and called the strip, "Hairstyles of Colfax." --- Kenny Be
