Zak Sally Micheletti
Zak Sally is a cartoonist, printmaker, publisher, musician, and educator. He self- published his first comic zine on a photocopier at the age of thirteen. In the intervening years, he played in the band Low, for which he received songwriting credit on two Grammy-nominated songs. And he had a bit part in the Steve Martin movie Shopgirl and a guest spot for ABC news online posting as a “music expert.” Sally has been nominated for two Eisner awards for the final issue of his Recidivist series, and he owns and operates his own award-winning micro-press concern, La Mano, for which he runs the offset press. He has designed record covers, posters, zines, illustrations, and all sorts of stuff, all over the place, for a long time. His current ongoing project is Sammy the Mouse, and he released a solo record, Fear of Song, in 2009. He’s been teaching at MCAD since 2007.
