Hunter Savage

Illustrator | Comic Artist | Designer


Howdy! I'm Hunter Savage, a queer comic artist, illustrator, designer, and all around lover of bears. I'm an alumni of the Maine College of Art & Design and hold a BFA in illustration. I'm located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts and you can normally find me scouring the internet for reference and mood board pictures.I’ve made and organized several zines and have a print archived at the International Cryptozoology Museum. I have also publish several short comics with the Boston Compass Newspaper.Overall, I would consider myself a multimedia artist, for me— there is no singular answer to creating an illustration or comic, sometimes you can achieve what you want more with a medium you don’t normally use. Continuing to learn and improve upon your practice is something that I hold to heart. My motto is that if I cannot do it today, I'll learn how to do it for tomorrow. At the end of the day I love to be challenged with my art. I always ask myself the question of how I can improve, experiment with, or change my art and practices for the better.

The Great Gatsby Cover

A personal project based on an idea I've had since The Great Gatsby was let into the public domain. The themes of greed and excess seem to be a universal constant within the backdrop of the united states, and as such, crafting a modern or semi-modern story centered around Nick and Gatsby would feel like an updated retelling rather than a new story.

Bugs on the brain

This comic was made about one of the founders of the exoplanet field, Sara Seager. She has been tirelessly working on finding a new earth-like planets in the past few years and I think this comic captures what's led her on this journey.

What are promises?

I made this comic in a really short amount of time for the Clip Studio Paint International Comic/Manga School Contest 2020. It was made in just a couple of weeks and posted to CSPS home site. The prompt for the year was promise so I decided to create a 'map' of sorts through different kinds of promises and the consequences of failing and keeping them.
