Kevin Hooyman

Published April 26, 2009 by Graham



Bred in the Pacific Northwest’s wooded wonderland and currently residing on a dilapidated farm in upstate New York, Kevin Hooyman has always felt strongly connected to the natural world. His paintings, illustrations and comics depict fantastic forests rich in psychedelic detail, anthropomorphic animals, and bearded shamans imparting deep wisdoms. Critiquing contemporary life from a perspective more transcendentalist than environmentalist, Hooyman’s images and stories use a detached sense of humor to break down everyday social interactions until they no longer seem to make sense or feel comfortable. Check out some pages from his latest book, Love to Live, on Arthur Magazine’s blog.
