Home Page

Chris "Kilika" Malone is some dude who loves to draw comics. He's probably best known for his surfing webcomic, Blue and Blond, a tale of two surf bums from New Jersey who travel the world with a surfing guinea pig. He took a hiatus from that story to test the waters in the kid's book market with the Misadventures of Box Cat and Punky Puppy, which is an epic story of a young man's struggle and rebellion against a dystopian tyrannical government. Nah, I'm totally messing with you. It's actually about a cat with a flying cardboard box, and a puppy with an awesome blue mohawk. So much cooler than the other story, right? A lot more fun to draw, too. Recently he got chosen to illustrate a children's book series called RoyGBiv, with book 2 coming out this fall.

He's returning to webcomics though, with Blue and Blond: Second Wave launching this summer. Same cast, but now throw in waves that defy the laws of physics, pirate ghosts, and time traveling surfboards. Also he's piecing together an anthology book with a few other cartoonists titled Candy Badlands and Other Post-Apocolyptic Kid's Stories.

He loves guinea pigs, hates jellyfish, and since he's constantly moving about in Atlanta, Richmond, D.C. and the Jersey Shore, it's just safe to say he lives on the East Coast.
