Profile for Stephen Stanley

Printmaker, illustrator, writer. BFA from KCAI.

I work mostly in “traditional” media — pen and ink, pencil, colored pencil, paint — but am prolific with Illustrator and Photoshop. Sometimes I use PS to color my work. Perhaps someday I’ll work more digitally.

I make woodcut, linocut, and etching limited edition prints, but I probably won’t show them here. If interested, you can find those on

I had a 40 year career as an award winning graphic designer, mostly print publications. Now I’d rather create work for myself to share here.

My website needs updating, but it will do for now.

First person to win both Writers of the Future (Vol. 21) and Illustrators of the Future (Vol. 24) contests.
