Mike Hoffman started drawing as far back as he can remember. “I vaguely remember seeing a TV program showing someone drawing, probably on Captain Kangaroo.” He started reading comic books in the late 1960s, gobbling up anything he could find.
About a dozen years later, in the 1980s, Hoffman started working in comics, mainly horror and contributed to Hellraiser, Hellblazer, Taboo, Swamp Thing, and others.
Creating fantasy art in the style of Frank Frazetta, he says, was a choice he made to help develop his skills. The Kid Domino Museum is pleased to have a Hoffman print that depicts Frazetta’s Mothman, which is among the museum's collection and is available for viewing by the public.
Hoffman has honed his distinctive style and produces works regularly. Of his art, he says it was not a choice for him but an imperative.
