Craig Hamilton was born in Macon, Georgia on December 29th, 1964. There, he was raised by his mother, the fabulous and beautiful Josie Kitchen. At the early age of twelve, Craig began private art study with the award-winning designed and master portraitist, Houser Smith. Weekly classes continued for seven years until Craig graduated from Mount De Sales Academy with honors in Art. Volunteering as an illustrator for the local newspaper’s Teen Page led to freelance work for the Macon Telegraph by the age of seventeen.
After only one short year at the Atlanta College of Art, he began working professionally for DC Comics on the 1986 Aquaman mini-series.
This work led to opportunities to work with Marvel Comics and S.Q. Publishing, primarily illustrating portfolios. Soon after, Craig began creating graphics for corporate clients and in the entertainment industry for films such as Stand By Me, Aliens, The Princess Bride, Batteries Not Included, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He also created graphics and logos in the music industry for entertainers such as Bon Jovi, Skid Row, INXS, The Bangles, M.O.D., and Leather Wolf.
He returned to comics to illustrate DC Comics’ Green Lantern (#50 & #55), Superboy (#25,) Legion of Superheroes (Annual #5), Starman #28, #53, and Annual #1), as well as Vertigo’s Flinch (#16). After three well-received issues of The Specter (#5, #10, & #14)m Craig ventured into inking on Vertigo’s new hit series Fables (#4, #12-13), as well as penciling and inking Lucifer (#30), and penciling Fables: The Last Castle.
Hamilton currently resides in the antebellum splendor of the historic district of Macon, Georgia, where he is now focusing on his fine art paintings under the label of Anonymous Eye Studios, and currently working on a graphic novel about Frankenstein.
