Martin Emond (New Zealand 1969 - Los Angeles, California March 5, 2004), also known under the pseudonyms "Martin Fuckin Emond", "Martyfuck", and "MFE", was a New Zealand cartoon illustrator and painter.
Emond found success early in his career illustrating Gordon Rennie's White Trash comic, which led to other high-profile cartoon work including designing album covers for Glenn Danzig. Later he created memorable characters such as the irreverent streetkid Switchblade and girl gang the Rolling Red Knuckles. Many of his illustrations were also produced extensively as screenprints on clothing for the popular New Zealand streetwear label Illicit.
Emond's work is said to be reminiscent of rock n' roll tattoos and classic sign art, and characterised by darkly sardonic humour.
He committed suicide in 2004.
Several of his images were adapted for use in the Pink's music video for "U + Ur Hand."
