Kevin Hooyman was born in 1974 in Two Harbors MN and raised in Seattle WA. In 1993 he moved to Providence RI to attend Brown University where he earned a degree in Visual Arts before moving to New York City, where he is currently based. Since 1997 he has been printing and distributing books of his drawings and writing. Kevin’s drawings create a mystical place that is deep in the forest, where animals and people can converse freely with each other and seek refuge to ponder those timeless big questions about life, love, and the universe. Often every available inch of the page is obsessively covered in dense, exquisite line work that sets the stage for the smart and humorous dialogue of his endearing characters.
