Steve's alleged cartoon career got rolling with a seventeen issue run of his high octane, largely improvised Dog Boy series in the Eighties. He served as co-publisher and contributing artist for a twenty issue run of the Buzzard comics anthology in the Nineties, while simultaneously dabbling with a strip about musically inclined insect men, entitled Bughouse.
To date, Steve has published two Bughouse novels with Top Shelf Productions, Bughouse and Baja. Bughouse illuminates the joy of creating improvisational jazz, while detailing the pitfalls of addiction. Baja is a simple coming of age/love story, with a supernatural twist. Which brings us to the real subject of Mr. Lafler's work, a constant striving to shed light on the wholly other; that is to say, the nature of reality beyond empirical knowledge.
Pursuant to this investigation, he is at work on Scalawag, the third picture novel in the Bughouse series.
