|There are many places on Earth that are intrinsically designed to squelch the life from any creature that dare intrude upon their treacherous domains. One such place is the sweltering heart of the searing desert aptly named Death Valley. From these scorched, barren landscapes strode a man. A man who survived the planetís brutal assault through his sheer force of will and unconquerable determination not to be added to the list of the slain. This man was NOT Kevin West.|
Kevin grew up in Chicago where the temperatures are pretty tolerable and easy to adapt to. He studied art at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana (where the sun always shines day or night). After a couple of advertising layout jobs, he decided to embark on the endless thrills of the freelancer. He has worked on a variety of projects over the years that have included video games, story-boards, designing various Christmas and Halloween products (ornaments, stockings, door panels and animated figures), illustrating childrenís books, theater posters and programs, character design, coloring books and of course, comics. Since 1991 he has done work for Marvel, DC, Wildstorm, Malibu, Acclaim, Disney and several smaller independent companies. His most recent work has been on Majestic, Blue Beetle, Nightmare on Elm Street and Gen13. He is currently be held captive by a nine and a ten year old in a western suburb of Chicago.
