Wes Huffor Art and Design

Palm Springs, CA, USA
The world of comics and graphic novels has provided an outlet for my art and mind, as it embraces both classical storytelling and modern aesthetics. Illustrating comics has allowed me to stay within the traditional realms of pen, ink, and paper, while encouraging me to explore the worlds of graphic design and printmaking.

Biography

Wes Huffor is a Southern Californian artist best known for visceral, seductive, and pathological crime and horror storytelling. Wes started out working for small press publishers in the Los Angeles and Inland Empire.

In 2008, Huffor released Charnel House, a Horror and Crime Anthology under the flag of UK based publisher Broken Voice. As a nod to Classic Crime and Horror with some modern twists, the stories in Charnel House were written by several writers from the US and UK, with Huffor’s pencil and ink images throughout. Charnel House was distributed worldwide in 2009.

Wes has worked on graphic design and illustration for comics, internet and multimedia outlets, including Marvel, Zenescope, Heavy Metal, Dig Deep Productions, and The Gutters. His work can also be found on assorted album covers, t-shirts, and promotional material for musicians Jason Charles Miller and KC Murdock, and the Down the Road Show media outlet.

In 2011, Wes was honored by having one of his original illustrations chosen to be added to the Edgar Allen Poe cottage in the Bronx, NY by the Historic House Trust of New York. The Poe cottage is a protected historic monument, which has been recently restored with the addition of a contemporary museum. Huffor’s illustration remains there as a permanent feature in the wall of Poe’s NY home.

Wes Huffor is currently working with noted Director/Producers Darin Scott and Ed Polgarty on a Horror comic book series entitled The Wrath.
