Behind the scenes: Gee Whizz

Mark Tudor Gee (aka Huck) was born in 1973 in Newcastle, but has lived in the US since the age of eight. Huck moved to San Francisco at 18, where he became ensconced in the Bay Area hip-hop scene, cultivating skills as a graffiti artist, illustrator and toy designer. Studying the work of artist Miyamoto Musahi, Huck developed a distinctive style he describes as "a little graffiti mixed with feudal Japanese culture and the bold lines and shapes of modern Japanese illustration."

Things were going well for Huck until October 2005 when, on returning from a trip to Asia, he had a run-in with the US Department of Homeland Security. Never having applied for citizenship, Huck had a British passport and was living on a Green Card. While he'd been away, his past had come back to haunt him.
