Additional Information

Perhaps best known for taking over Mad magazine’s Spy vs. Spy (beginning in 1997), Peter Kuper is a New York teacher, alternative cartoonist, and graphic novelist. Kuper has produced over twenty books including an adaptation of Franz Kafka’s novel, The Metamorphosis, in which the main character transforms in to a beetle.

The Metamorphosis was created when Kuper visited the University of North Dakota. Working along side students, many prints were created as part of the Sundog Multiples program at the University of North Dakota. Sundog Multiples is a printmaking venture created by Art & Design Professor Kim Fink, in conjunction with UND Art Collections, and generously funded by the Myers Foundations.
