Iggy Azalea’s Dad is a Weirdo Comic Artist



In unsurprising familial reports of the day, Iggy Azalea comes from a family of odd ducks. Her father, Brendan Kelly, is a writer and self-described comic artist. He’s penned a number of children’s book parodies, with titles like: The Runt Who Said Cunt and The Perfect Poo.
Azalea has previously described her dad as her “art coach” to Complex:

“My dad was a comic artist. He doesn’t draw cartoons anymore. Now he lives in the rainforest, does oil paintings, and meditates and shit. But he always made me read books and he’s a lot of the reason why I have so many people around me that I draw stuff from for inspiration. ... He made me look at [art] as a teenager. He would give me books and he would give me quizzes. We were talking the other night at dinner about [the artist] Robert Crumb. He would always tell me, ‘Look at this film,’ or ‘Look at this artist. What do you think he’s trying to say?’

In other words — like many great musicians before her — Iggy has emerged from a childhood of artistic training, carefully coached by the acclaimed author of a book about impeccable doodies.
