About me

Look, I’m gonna be honest with you here. In this bio, I’m NOT gonna brag about all of the comic awards I’ve won, including FIRST PLACE in the BDIFL competition in Lausanne, Switzerland. I’m not going to tell you that I’ve exhibited/am exhibiting my work literally from SEA TO SHINING SEA. No. This isn’t going to be a space where I talk about my RESEARCH in comics and picture stories and drop ten-dollar words like “phenomenology” and “visual-mechanics” or a phrase like “reconceptualizing genre as a spatio-temporal experience”. I’m definitely not going to talk about my BA DEGREE IN RUSSIAN AND ART from KENYON COLLEGE or my MFA IN ILLUSTRATION AND VISUAL CULTURE from WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST LOUIS. I’m also not going to use this space to BRAG about my incredible comic and illustration students at ROCHESTER INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY in ROCHESTER, NEW YORK. Not a chance. Instead, I’m going to give you what you came here for. Here it goes:

While Henry Uhrik can draw some things JUST FINE, he’s probably a liar, a cheat, and a scoundrel. You can probably do a lot of things a whole heck of a lot better than Henry Uhrik. Like welding. Henry Uhrik is probably TERRIBLE at welding (he is). OR drawing hands. Henry Uhrik probably can’t draw hands (he can’t). Ha. You got him beat.

If you’ve truly given up all hope and Henry Uhrik truly seems like he might not be completely horrible to work with, you can reach him at henry.uhrik@gmail.com.
