Illustrator/Concept Artist/Fine Artist/Designer
Although born from the frozen north, W.H.Mackey grew up right in the center of Kansas, also known as Smallville, a.k.a. Hutchinson. He later attended the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, MO where in 2002, received a BFA in illustration and design. Since then, he has collaborated with a number of clients including Sprint, Kelloggs, Kashi and Gatorade.
W.H.Mackey’s creations often depict various whimsical characters, objects and environments that explore the human psyche. With elements that are just a little “off” and a little odd, his illustrations guide the viewer into a world of layered color, broken shapes, textures and a hint of gothic contrast. Often times inspired by the constant struggle between imperfection and perfection.
