About me

My name is Henry Uhrik and I am an award winning cartoonist, illustrator, and writer on visual culture currently teaching comics and illustration at Rochester Institute of Technology. I received my BA in Russian and Studio Art from Kenyon College and my MFA in Illustration and Visual Culture from Washington University in St. Louis. I make fiction comics about light-tragedies in zany situations. These range from wacky stories about robots who want to eat but can’t, to mysteries about mansions and scented candles. My research currently focuses on conceiving of genre as time-and-space-bending phenomenon and the underlying mechanics of picture stories.
