“I don't think less, or fewer, is always more, or specifically, better. Not necessarily.”
Kevin Huizenga was born in 1977 in Harvey, IL and spent most of his childhood in South Holland, IL, near Chicago. He attended college in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and moved to St. Louis in 2000, where he still lives with his wife, Katie.
Huizenga’s comics are at once straight-forward and wide-ranging. His main character is the suburban dweller, Glenn Ganges.
He began drawing comics in high school, xeroxing the first one (with friends) at the neighborhood Jewel Osco in 1993. Since that time he's made many more self-published comic books. He has collected some of these in Drawn and Quarterly’s series OR ELSE and the collection of short stories, CURSES, as well as Fantagraphics series, GANGES, in their Ignatz imprint.
Since February 2008, Kevin Huizenga has been drawing a comic strip called Amazing Facts and Beyond! with Leon Beyond in the St. Louis Riverfront Times with Dan Zettwoch, they do a new strip every week. His other blogs are The Balloonist , and Fight or Run?.
