David Huyck - Illustrator


David Huyck adores stories of all kinds and any way he can get them. He loves books, comics, animation and movies, and he especially likes when there is a mystery to be solved or a bad guy to vanquish. Some of his favorite stories have been improvised by his friends, sitting around a table with a pile of twenty-sided dice.#Growing up outside of Chicago, candy, cartoons and Legos were almost as important to David as pencils and drawing paper. In more recent years, he has also successfully experimented with printmaking, painting, sculpting, computer programming, and teaching all of these things. His artwork has appeared on T-shirts and toys, in magazines and books, and one thing he made went on a trip to the South Pole.#David lives with his family in a 118-year-old house with bees in the backyard. If he’s not drawing or making stuff in his subterranean studio, he probably joined his family for a walk in the woods, or he rolled a critical fail trying to attack the eye of a Beholder.#Instagram/Twitter: @huyckd Website: davidhuyck.com
