Eddie Campbell

Eddie Campbell at the 2008 San Diego Comicon Eddie Campbell (born 10 August 1955) is a British comics artist and cartoonist who now lives in Chicago. Probably best known as the illustrator and publisher of ''From Hell'' (written by Alan Moore), Campbell is also the creator of the semi-autobiographical ''Alec'' stories collected in ''Alec: The Years Have Pants'', and ''Bacchus'' (aka ''Deadface''), a wry adventure series about the few Greek gods who have survived to the present day. His graphic novel ''The Lovely Horrible Stuff'', which playfully investigates our relationship with money, was published in July 2012 by Top Shelf Productions.

His scratchy pen-and-ink style is influenced by the impressionists, illustrators of the age of "liberated penmanship" such as Phil May, Charles Dana Gibson, John Leech and George du Maurier, and cartoonists Milton Caniff and Frank Frazetta (particularly his ''Johnny Comet'' strip). Campbell's writing has been compared to that of Jack Kerouac and Henry Miller. Provided by Wikipedia
