Eric Kostiuk Williams is an illustrator and cartoonist based in Toronto, Ontario. He graduated from Ontario College of Art & Design University’s illustration program in 2014. Kostiuk Williams first came to international attention upon the release of his self-published series, Hungry Bottom Comics, which fuses memoir and cultural critique to explore internalized homophobia in the gay community, the rise of hookup apps, and the struggles in finding community.


Eric Kostiuk Williams’ comics are visually defined by their malleability. His forms shine like latex and stretch like taffy, and his stories take place in surreal, psychedelic environments that morph as time passes. That fluid visual aesthetic ties into major themes of his work like gender expression, queer culture, and urban preservation and development, all of which involve people and places in a constant state of change.

– A.V. Club

The piece is a meditation both on how we apply the filter of social media to ourselves and others, and how the internet can actually help bridge gaps between people of very different points of view and value systems.

– PEN America

This comic of queer-loving and support resurrects the bite of David Wojnarowicz, inspiring readers with a fierce sense of humor and an activist rallying call.

– Lambda Literary

Throughout, there is a wistful sense of how great the city could be were it to value its underground, subcultural bustle rather than reaching up to the sky.

– C Magazine

Eric is a major, visionary talent in both the queer comics scene and larger alternative comics world.
