Kansas City, United States

Summary

In love with worldbuilding and storytelling for as long as he can remember, Levi has worked with the likes of Microsoft, Dark Horse Comics, 343 Industries, Catalyst Game Labs, and more on his path to world domination.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Missouri with an emphasis on illustration and anatomical drawing, Levi taught himself digital painting and began experimenting with comics and game design. His early webcomic, A Fistful of Arrows (http://Leviathan.Bungie.org), made an impact on the Halo fan community by filling in the gaps of the story of Halo: Reach. He went on to create a science-fiction graphic novel entitled Mayflower (http://MayflowerComic.com) and the 80’s manga-inspired REmaster Monk.

Levi has illustrated in-house for Cinder Block Brewery and the Kansas City Public Library, and his art has been featured in a number of books, magazines, comics, and games, like Halo Encyclopedia, Halo: Evolutions, Shadowrun, and Kansas City’s The Pitch.

When not fighting his impostor-syndrome in samurai combat, Levi likes to read Taoist poetry in the sun while wearing a straw cowboy hat and listening The Clash.
