Luster Kaboom, that is, aka David Quan. He is a comic book artist from Phoenix who has now moved back to New York, where he went to art school, in the hopes of fulfilling his dream of making comics. You can read more about him here.

The blue ooze surrounding this El Mac mural, below, that I wrote about a few weeks ago, is also by Luster Kaboom. There used to be a Lalo Cota next door but it’s been removed.

He won the Phoenix New TimesBest Mural of 2011 for this.
