Guy Juke was born in San Angelo Texas on September 4th, 1951. Juke’s father was a local architect who saw natural talent in his son and gave him encouragement and private art lessons at an early age. He began his career writing and illustrating underground comics. In late 1972, he moved to Austin, Texas.
While hanging around the local music scene, the Armadillo World Headquarters especially, Juke was exposed to the Austin music poster artists. It wasn’t long before he was producing concert posters for the likes of Frank Zappa, Ricky Lee Jones, "Talking Heads" and too many more to mention. Numerous illustrations for local magazines and album covers were designed in years to come.
