Joel "Mr. Hook" Hoekstra is a Graphic Designer an Freelance Illustrator who currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska, USA. He graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 1995 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (Cum Laude). His major was Pictorial Illustration which emphasized a “problem solving” approach to various illustration tasks.

Before switching almost entirely to digital media, Mr. Hook was trained in many different traditional painting and drawing techniques (such as oil paints, water colors, etc). During his college years he preferred to work mostly with acrylic paints and colored pencils. Most of his current artwork strives to mimic traditional acrylic painting styles with image-manipulation software (such as Photoshop) and 3D modeling programs (such as SketchUp).

Since moving to Omaha, Mr. Hook has also tried his hand at various freelance projects, mostly fantasy art. The links below will lead you to a sampling of Mr. Hook's various online endeavors, but the "Main Talent Showcase" is probably a good place to start. NOTE: Mr. Hook also posts on various online forums as "Son of Joxer" (fan art) and "None the Wiser" (games), which is why you might find artwork/fan fiction listed here under those names. Browse and enjoy!
