About Lukey McGarry’s TLDR
“Lukey McGarry's TLDR” takes its title from the internet acronym that is shorthand for “too long; didn’t read” – which is pretty apropos for a comic that’s invariably light on wordy exposition but loaded with excruciating puns and niche pop culture references, delivered in Luke’s highly distinctive, award-winning cartoon style.
Luke McGarry is an illustrator, cartoonist, animator and designer from Manchester, UK, now based in Los Angeles.
His clients include Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Observer, Goldenvoice, FYF Fest, Festival Supreme, Myspace, Vans Shoes, Chilli Beans Sunglasses and Universal Music Group among others. He has created a number of animations and music videos for the likes of VISA, IFC, Epitaph Records, Universal Republic Records and the NHL. He has received the Silver T-Square award from the National Cartoonists Society, and a cease and desist letter from the city of Santa Monica.
He’s one half of design outfit Fantastic Heat Brothers, and he sings, plays bass and twiddles knobs in the band Pop Noir.
