About Dustin Parker
Dustin Parker is an artist. As an infant, a box of crayons ignited his passion for creating art and that fire continues to burn in his veins. He grew up drawing robots and dinosaurs on his spelling tests and constructing his own action figures out of construction paper and scotch tape. As an adult, Parker earns his nacho money designing logos, drawing illustrations and selling paintings in art galleries. Parker procrastinates about writing and illustrating his first graphic novel but is proficient at wasting time drawing zombies, skulls and dinosaurs. He is nourished by David Lynch films, Chuck Palahniuk novels, Smashing Pumpkins songs and comic books.

Wade Hampton has been drawing illustrations for The Shocker Magazine’s “Marginalia” entries for almost 16 years. Nobody has drawn WuShock more times than Wade. Wade decided it was time to pass the torch to another artist and I’m happy, honored and humbled to be that artist. I have very big shoes to fill. My first issue is out now. I hope all of you enjoy my illustrations as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thanks to Wade for suggesting me and thanks to Connie White for hiring me to draw silly illustrations of WuShock. WuShock is really fun to draw and I can’t wait to start working on the next issue.

All of the illustrations are © Copyright The Shocker, Wichita State University Alumni Magazine.

I’m happy to officially announce that my next solo art exhibition will be called “Dustin Parker’s Monster Mania” and it will be hosted by Lawrence Photo Print & Frame (6508 E Central Ave, Wichita, KS 67206) on Final Friday, October 27th. The exhibit will showcase a new series of digital illustrations featuring wacky monsters, killer robots, skulls, goth girls, alien invaders and anthropomorphic food. This should be a really fun show.
