Carl Wiens grew up collecting insects and dreaming of being a hermit. He has worked for the past twenty-odd years as an illustrator, fulfilling a childhood dream to stay at home to draw pictures all day. Carl’s work has appeared in many publications, including Time, Esquire, and The New York Times. Book projects include Sci-Fi Baby Names, The Man’s Guide to Underwear Repair and the First Timer's Kit: The Safe Effective Way to Lose your Virginity.
Carl lives in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. The work evolves in a small barn that houses a fleet of bicycles on the first floor and a big bright studio on the second. He stays active by mountain biking and canoeing in the summer and playing shinny on the back yard rink in the winter.
Carl is currently developing a series of CMY-X prints for an upcoming gallery show.
