about Ken Krekeler

DOWNLOAD RESUME

Ken Krekeler majored in illustration in Detroit, MI at the College for Creative Studies. He graduated in 2009, the same year he released his first full-color graphic novel The Colodin Project. The book was sold in comic shops everywhere and distributed by Diamond Distribution. In January of 2011, he began his own publishing company, Kinetic Press. It was under this label that he released his second book, Dry Spell; a compact super powers story also in full-color. In June of 2012 he began his own ongoing black-and-white comic book series Westward, a steampunk mystery comic book series exploring the nature of achievement and human happiness.

Ken currently lives in Birmingham, Michigan, where he works at an advertising agency that provides coffee, and there used to be bagels on Thursdays, but not anymore. Not anymore.

IT IS NOT THE JOB OF THE ARTIST TO GIVE THE AUDIENCE WHAT THE AUDIENCE WANTS. IF THE AUDIENCE KNEW WHAT IT WANTED, THEY WOULD BE THE ARTISTS.
