Ken Henson now rides the bus, which in his opinion is not unlike astral travel. After getting off the bus, he enters the Art Academy of Cincinnati, where he teaches people automatic drawing techniques and other methods for achieving deep trance. When he isn't doing this, Ken can be found in his basement getting his drawing fix to the backdrop of a stellar VHS horror movie collection.
Ken's work has appeared on book covers for Allyn & Bacon, Inc., Blaze-VOX, Forklift Ink, Longman, Kayelle Press, Prentice Hall, and Waveland Press and his comics have been published by Alternacomics, Fanatic Press, Young American Comics, Frameworks, and others.
Ken has his M.F.A. in Painting from The University of Cincinnati, and his B.F.A. in Painting from Eastern Kentucky University. Awards Ken has won include The Chautauqua Institution Award in the 46th National Exhibition of American Art at The Chautauqua Center for the Visual Arts, NY, and Grand Prize in the All Kentucky Open Art Exhibition, hosted by the Lexington Art League. Ken was a finalist in the 4th Annual Miami University Young Painters’ Competition for the William and Dorothy Yeck Award.
