Dennis A! is an artist from a small town in SW Lower Michigan. Primarily illustration and character design, Dennis also paints and sculpts with a nod towards fantasy, wildlife and pin-up art. Dennis has worked in the advertising and marketing industry for over 17 years, creating storyboards and illustrations for industry leaders such as Nissan and Crown Electronics. In the early 90’s, Dennis worked with small press publishers Hall of Heroes and Liquid Comics, creating and illustrating several b/w horror and fantasy comic books. In recent years, Dennis has worked with numerous national music acts creating gig posters for bands like Black Stone Cherry, Alice Cooper, Steel Panther, Mastodon, Trivium, Chevelle, GWAR, Otep, Soulfly, Theory of a Deadman, Umphrey’s McGee, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Halestorm and many more. Most recently, Dennis has worked with Evil Czech Brewery to create several craft beer labels and original character designs. He is currently a freelance illustrator working with several high-end restaurants and breweries and Dennis has new comic art to be featured in an upcoming anthology by punk icons Electric Frankenstein. Late 2017 saw the release of the first children’s book that Dennis has illustrated, called Lola and Lazlo: Into the Woods. It’s a wonderful tale of a girl, looking for her lost dog and encountering amazing groups of animals who help her along the way. Dennis returns to Motor City this year to promote his new children’s book, along with lots of new original art, prints and paintings and maybe even a couple sculptures and custom 1:6 scale figures.
