Rory Kurtz

Rory Kurtz has been illustrating since he was old enough to hold a crayon, and glad for it. He works a bit in pencil, ink, and digital paint to create his work and hopes that, in the end, the result is a perfect marriage of these mediums.

His influences are across the board. He said: "I'm just as much moved to create from the music I rock out to in the studio (very loudly...sometimes singing along terribly), to great movies and novels that leave me wanting to react somehow on paper."

Born and raised in the Midwest, Rory taught himself to paint and draw from books, observation, and sheer force of will. To see more of his work visit
