Design work[edit]

The "devil boy" graphic created by McKee for World Industries,

Like other World Industries art, McKee's work was recognised for its uncensored content and themes;[2] something McKee has continued to further in his post-World-Industries career.[3]

During the 1990s, McKee was also employed by Hustler magazine and published a number of his stylistic cartoons for a special "naughty" Christmas carols series.[2]

In 2011, McKee exhibited a portion of his historical work during Milan Design Week.[4]
