Artist image for Sean Äaberg

Sean Äaberg was born and raised in Oakland, California into a bohemian family. In 1988, at age twelve, he discovered zines, the Church of the Subgenius, and Punk at the same time which gave his world of Garbage Pail Kids, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Dr. Demento, and MAD Magazine direction and drive. Sean has viewed his visual art as part of a series of cultural systems and tries to incorporate all levels of culture with his work. In 2000, Sean married fellow East Bay artist Katie Krause (now Aaberg), & they started GOBLINKO after his Punk name “Goblin” as an umbrella for their projects. In 2011 Sean launched PORK Magazine to cover Rock&Roll, Weirdo Art, and Bad Ideas, going for an inclusive, big-tent approach. PORK influenced generations of lowbrow artists, Rock bands, and entrepreneurs who copied the GOBLINKO business model. As the internet and smart phones changed how people consume media, Äaberg decided that making games would better meet his audience. DUNGEON DEGENERATES was released in 2017. In September, 2018 Äaberg suffered a severe stroke and is now recovering and figuring out what to do next. Sean lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife Katie and their three kids.
