Kofoed is a genre illustrator and novelist, who sometimes works as Karl B Kofoed, probably best known for his Galactic Geographic series.

He received his formal art training at the Philadelphia College of Art, thereafter working as a technical illustrator for the aerospace industry before entering a career that embraced television (art director and scenic designer for two local stations), marketing, poster design, and promotional art direction.
