Hal Hefner
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I like to create things. I dabble in many medias to create my art: digital, video and traditional...are just a few I like to play around with. I am constantly pushing the boundaries with what I can create to tell stories. Some are simple, some are more complex but everything I do has a story to it.

I am currently building a Transmedia story world using multiple media platforms to reach people personally. I will be keeping a journal of my journey on this site so please join me on the ride.

I am the CCO of a storytelling studio called CATMONKEY

I am the artist, writer and creator of Heavy Metal Magazine's first online comic book series, GATES. Gates is the launching pad for a multi platform, science fiction story, which begins in a graphic novel style format available for free online at this website

My personal website

I am also the Managing Director of Transmedia Los Angeles, one of the United States' largest multiplatform storytelling organizations. We hold monthly meetups and more in Los Angeles. In 2013 I will be launching an Experimental Storytelling Lab called Prototype, within Transmedia LA. Please check us out and us know if you'd like to participate.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what you find! Feel free to connect with me socially in other places too.

Personal Quote: Listen with your eyes, not your ears
Hey everyone...Just wanted to let you all know that I have some big things in the works and they involve...

1) Madefire
2) Transmedia
3) Some dA art/design contests
4) Recruiting a BUNCH of YOU to be a part of the interactive story... order to kick this off, starting tomorrow, I will be launching GATES, the online comic book that I created--and was presented by Heavy metal Magazine--FOR FREE, on here for everyone to read and enjoy. 

You can read the comic here right now: GATES the COMIC BOOK

Tomorrow I will be uploading the entire book here to celebrate the coming of the SERPENT SEED, the bigger universe that Gates belongs to.

I'm stoked to bring it to dA because this is my home. This place makes me happy.
