Doin’ It With Kevin Boze!
If there’s any cartoonist who knows how, it’s KEVIN BOZE. Kevin will be the guest speaker at the May meeting of Cartoonists Northwest. Kevin is the creator of “The Virgin Project”, the book that chronicles true stories of sexual initiation.
A native of Seattle, Kevin got his first professional art assignment at age 14, drawing "concept sketches" of houses for a construction company.
After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command and soon found himself in Wuerzburg, Germany, where he debuted his first daily newspaper comic strip, "Corporal Kev", in the European edition of Stars and Stripes, the newspaper for the U.S. military.
Kevin's other comics features - "Camille", "Bark-ley Square" and "Role Call" - all have been created for distribution on the World Wide Web. Kevin also is a professional graphic artist who has created posters, advertising art, and spot illustrations for the Boeing Company, Home Brew Heaven, Camwood Players, Driftwood Players, Skagit Community Art Theatre, Island County Water Management, Snohomish County Department of Health, the Everett Police Department, and the Seattle School District.
Other arts activities include performing in Comic Biography Theater at Seattle's Bumbershoot Arts Festival in 2004, creating a 24-page comic book in 24 hours at Spawns of Insomnia and appearing in other workshops at Cascadia Con in 2005, and judging the editorial cartooning competition at the Washington Journalism Education Association state championships for the last three years.
Kevin graduated summa cum laude from Henry Cogswell College with a B.A. in Digital Arts, with an emphasis in animation. He is an active member of Cartoonists Northwest, and makes his home in Seattle with his family.
