A Brief Bio or Personal Summary

Ian Jay has been making comics ever since they realized there was only so much attention they could devote to 7th grade algebra class. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in Sequential Art, Ian has been putting comics on the internet for over nine years. Recently they published their second book, EPIPHANY, a graphic novel about animal people going through religious crises. They currently live and work in Shoreline, Washington, with their partner Nero O'Reilly and two very weird cats.

What are you currently working on?

Ian recently co-edited and ran a piece in the second issue of a biannual anthro comics magazine, RRUFFURR ONLINE, which can be read at http://rruffurronline.com. Currently they're in pre-planning stages for their next webcomic project, CROSSED WIRES, due out in May 2014.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I write the kind of stories I want to read and see more of: characters in fantastic or unusual settings with complex, human problems. If awarded a grant, I plan to create unique, compelling comics featuring perspectives and situations that aren't often covered in the modern alternative seq. art scene. Let's make better comics so we can make comics better!
