Dustin Parker is an artist raised on a steady diet of Saturday morning cartoons, comic books, 1980s horror films and “The Joy of Painting.” As a child, Parker doodled dinosaurs on his homework and made comicstrips about vampires. As an adult, Parker earns his pizza dough designing t-shirts, drawing illustrations and selling paintings in art galleries. Parker creates digital illustrations depicting maniacal monsters and oddball characters using traditional comic book illustration techniques. Parker’s illustrations are characterized by bold line work, garish colors and gritty textures. When Parker isn’t drawing flaming skulls or anthropomorphic pizza creatures, he is constructing abstract and figurative collage paintings using multiple layers of paint and found paper, such as old comic books, maps, instruction manuals and sheet music. Parker is an artist that holds Jack Kirby, Richard Diebenkorn and Francis Bacon in equal esteem. Parker lives and works in Wichita, KS. Read Less
