Bill Hauser is a Minnesota-based illustrator and cartoonist whose artwork has graced the record covers of bands from around the world. His work is well known in the underground punk, hardcore and heavy metal world. Bill’s illustrations reflect the youthful chaos and excitement of punk music while still paying tribute to the master comic book craftsmen of the 1950s.
A 1996 Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Design graduate, Bill learned how to letter comic books from world renowned cartoonist Hy Eisman. Bill has also drawn comic books for Devil’s Due Publishing and Dead Dog Comics.
Bill instructed a well received comic book course, from 2013-2020, at the Art Academy in St. Paul Minnesota. In 2016, a retrospective exhibit of his artwork adorned the walls of Galerie Gemund in Haarlem, Netherlands and he was a featured artist and speaker at that year’s Stripdagen comic book festival.
Bill lives in Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota with his wife and three children.
