Jeff is a midwesterner based in New York City. He has an MFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design, and a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University where he studied theater, set and costume design, and puppetry.
With a background in the dramatic Jeff’s illustrations are darkly humorous; characterized by a skewed perspective, bold colors, and a quirky edge. Blending 2-D and 3-D, his illustrations are an assemblage of original ink drawings, traditional paintings, cut paper relief, meticulous models, and the odd found object.
His work has been recognized by American Illustration and 3x3; and it can be seen in "The New York Times", "Interview", “Chance Magazine”, "Gulfshore Life", "MNSights", “Vogue Living”, “Lighting and Sound America” and in Penguin Random House publishings, with Broadway Impact and Broadway Box Office, Denizen Company, and Disney Theatrical.
His extensive theatrical work for Broadway, television, opera and ballet can be seen at JeffHincheeDesign.com.
