Huck is best known for large-scale, satirical woodcuts. Based in St. Louis, Mo., he runs his own press, called “Evil Prints.” His illustrations have appeared in The Village Voice, The Riverfront Times and the Minneapolis City Pages. His woodcut prints are included in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Library of Congress, the Spencer Museum of Art (University of Kansas), Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Mo., The Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, New York Public Library, Eli Ridgway Gallery of San Francisco and many more. 

Huck is a regular contributor to the cutting edge comic, “BLAB!” published by Fantagraphics Books.

In addition to his public talk, Huck will be visiting OSU art classes and reviewing art studio portfolios during his time on campus. The Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture series brings world-renowned artists and scholars to campus to interact with students in the art department so they can learn what is required of a professional artist or scholar.
