Hoop & Stick is Brandon Spence:

Hoop & Stick is an underemployed artsy, creative type currently lurking around Raleigh, North Carolina.
He began drawing forever-ago, but has since seen the light.
Now he is a faithful servant to collage.
Oh, he'll still illustrate traditionally, but you'll have to answer three riddles first.
He is a veteran of anywhere between three and five colleges (depending on who's doing the counting), and while it kept him sharp, the victory of obtaining that coveted BA in 2013 somehow seemed less important that it did when he started in 2003. Living alone in a cave atop a craggy peak while growing a magnificent beard, on the other hand, appears to be a goal far more praiseworthy.
That might very well be his next project.
