Illustrator and artist Henrik Drescher, born in Copenhagen, immigrated to the United States with his family in 1967. After one semester at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Drescher left to work locally and travel in the United States, Mexico, and Europe, keeping journals of notes and drawings, which he incorporated into later projects.
Drescher works in notebooks, publishing his illustrations as mass-produced books with different publishers and as editorial illustrations in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek, and others. He has received numerous honors, including two awards from the Society of Illustrators, and his work can be found in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Drescher shares excerpts and images from his recent work, including his prolific forays into children's books and his work-in-progress The Dread See Scrolls, on his website.
