Southern born, west coast raised, Noah Hayes dabbled in aspirations of paleontology and geochemistry before realizing that he could make art instead, which was obviously the more sensible choice. Drawing on a childhood love of comics, he received his BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design and shortly landed his first job with BOOM! Studios’ Goldie Vance. With a steadily growing online following, he has been featured in a number of galleries and zines, and he currently works on the The Avant-Guards. In 2018, he and the rest of the Goldie Vance team were nominated for GLAAD’s Outstanding Comic award.

In his spare time, Noah moonlights as a tabletop RPG player, video game enthusiast, crochet amateur, and father to two large cats and two much smaller fish.

He has also been featured in various galleries and zines such as: 

Illest of Illustration (2014, 2015, 2016)

Tradigital (2015)

From Stairs to Stadiums (2015)

Best Season Ever: A 1D Artist Collab Coloring Book (2016)
