What is this style of ‘punk art’ called?

I was looking for a new style of art that I wanted to try learning, I really like this high contrast and ‘cartoonish’ approach to this style.

Does anyone know the exact art-style this is considered (or how I can find more examples)

Here is the piece I would like to know about:

<p>The example is by <a href=Keith Caves.

Thanks for the help everyone!


I would say it’s a punk comic / DIY zine art style, although I’m not aware of it having a defined name.

Scumball is a brand built around comics and art zines with themes of
slime and lowbrow art/humor.

I found this extract here.

It reminds me of a slightly more cartoon like Raymond Pettibon, who did a lot of early 80’s DIY Hardcore and Punk bans such as Black Flag and Sonic Youth (images from Google images).

Also check out old Pushead art work, especially his Thrasher era work as it’s a lot more simplified (images from Google images).
