Levi Hoffmeier
Illustrator & Concept Artist
Kansas City, United States

Summary

In love with worldbuilding and narrative, Levi began developing his art skills from a young age to be able to articulate the stories growing in his mind. 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, Halo: 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. His illustrations have been featured in Shadowrun, Halo: Evolutions, The Pitch, and a number of comic books, games, magazines, posters, packaging designs, and more. Recently, Levi designed and illustrated work in-house for Cinder Block Brewery and the Kansas City Public Library and is in the midst of creating an original graphic novel entitled "Mayflower: A Story of Spaces" (http://MayflowerComic.com).

His plans for further global domination have been delayed while he tries to sort through his comic book collection. I mean, you ever tried dragging 11 long boxes of comics with you between moves? Ugh, my back hurts just thinking about it...
