Stephen Burks is a Virginia based illustrator and writer. A mostly self-taught artist, he has studied creative writing, ancient religion, and technology. His earliest works (around age 10) include some stunning concept art that he combined with a spellbinding story pitch for a sequel to the 1979 cinematic classic The Warriors (sadly, still unproduced).

As an illustrator, his past clients include Marvel, Upper Deck, Stormgate Press, PocketJack Comics, Radical Visions Comics, and Maerkle Press. Stephen artistically works with watercolors, gouache, and inks. He focuses on fantasy and pulp inspired imagery especially around themes of magic and self-identity.

He wrote the web comic Our Last Gasp, multiple short films and an 8-episode live-action mockumentary on ghost hunting produced by Iconograph Studios.

He lives outside Richmond with his wife and children.
