Kevin Ancell | Monster Children

ANP Artist Kevin Ancell has an interview in the new Monster Children Issue 38. Below is the intro to the article that describes Kevin to a T, talented, great storyteller and funny as hell! The article is a great read and has some amazing photos of Kevin's latest work. Head over to monsterchildren.com and get yourself a copy."IN THIS INTERVIEW WITH THE LEGENDARY ARTIST KEVIN ANCELL THERE ARE FIVE ‘FUCKS’, 42 ‘FUCKIN’S’, AND A TRIO OF ‘SHITS’. I WAS GOING TO CUT THESE EXPLETIVES FROM THE TEXT BUT THEN I THOUGHT, THAT’S KEVIN, THAT’S HOW HE TALKS, I’LL LEAVE THEM IN.
YOU COULDN’T BLAME KEVIN FOR PEPPERING HIS SENTENCES WITH SAILOR TALK: HE’S WEATHERED SOME REMARKABLY ROUGH SEAS. BORN IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, IN THE EARLY ‘60S, KEVIN FOUND HIMSELF HOMELESS AT THE TENDER AGE OF NINE. HE STAYED WITH HIS BROTHER FOR A TIME, COUCH SURFED WHERE HE COULD, AND FINALLY CAME UNDER THE AVUNCULAR WING OF ONE CRAIG STECYK III. THE REST, AS THEY SAY, IS HISTORY.
KEVIN IS AN ARTIST OF SEVERAL DISCIPLINES, MOST NOTABLY PAINTING. HE’S ALSO A TALENTED STORYTELLER AND ONE OF THE FUNNIEST PEOPLE I’VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF INTERVIEWING. MEET KEVIN ANCELL."
