About Scraped Knee


Scraped Knee originally was the name of a series of zines and comic books created by founder Matt Leunig and in 2006 eventually became the name of the overall studio. Early on, work consisted mostly of screenprinted gigposters for touring bands and comic books but has since grown into all fields of illustration. His work has appeared in numerous publications, video games, music videos, art galleries, etc..

After a transient childhood overseas growing up in the Middle East, Leunig landed in the Bay Area and spent 10 years working in the video game industry and other jobs. Scraped Knee became a full time studio in 2010 & with the freedom of working from anywhere came the ability to uproot and travel whenever needed or wanted. After a brief 3 year stint in India, Atlanta & Washington DC the studio couldn’t help itself and had to return back to the Bay Area.

Scraped Knee is a proud Oakland business.
