Lucky for us, Geof Darrow is a stickler for the details. His intricate, clean line artwork attracted the attention of comics creator Frank Miller in 1990, and the two would go onto create Hard-Boiled, and Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot for Dark Horse. After serving as Conceptual Designer on all 3 Matrix movies, Darrow created the original series Shaolin Cowboy for The Wachowski Bros’ Burlyman Entertainment in 2005. He continues to produce new Shaolin Cowboy comics, to this day.

In the early 1980’s, after studying his craft at the American Academy of Arts in Chicago, Darrow worked with such comics legends as Jack Kirby(at Hanna Barbera studios), and Moebius(City of Fire art project).

Geof Darrow has won 3 Eisner Awards for excellence in writing/illustrating comics, as well as an Inkpot Award.

A good way to check out more art, and keep up with Mr. Darrow’s work is to “like” his facebook page here.
