My Bio

Ian Struckhoff began writing his first graphic novel "The Deathlings: Anne's Story" on July 22nd, 2009. Since then, he has produced the first issues of that series, of an anthology of his comics short stories "Black Label Comics," and of the series "The Dark Age".

He is also currently working on the first issue of "Huginn & Muninn: Blood Brothers," a one-shot comic "Failsafe," and developing numerous series including "Rooftop Lily".

Ian X. is a self-taught fine art portrait photographer, who began his work at the turn of the Millenium while a student in the United Kingdom. He studied Philosophy at Reed College in Oregon, the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and the University of Sheffield in England. Born in New Hampshire, he now works out of a studio in Lawrence, MA and resides in Cambridge, MA.

When asked to describe his work, Ian responds, "I mostly take strange portraits of beautiful girls, or maybe it's the other way 'round. My constant themes have been contrast (both visual and conceptual), beauty, darkness, personality, and the unnatural or supernatural. The same character, whether it's the subject herself or a fictional creation, should be seen as both powerful and vulnerable-- either predator or prey-- within an instant."
