of Jack B: Ride the Air
My name is Gregory Garay. I’m a Graphic/Web Designer with Comic Book Illustration skills. I was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx (NYC). I wanted to be a cartoonist as a young child (8). Eventually I found my way to it.
Cartoons I loved as a kid
Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Tailspin, Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, Sonic (the one on fox that was a bit darker and serious), Dragon Ball Z, Botz,and Ronin Warriors. It’s because of those cartoons that I still watch cartoons now.
Why make a comic?
Honestly, I’ve been trying to make a comic since I was in college back in 2002. It’s my honest belief that I just think in a sequential fashion. Jack B started out as an animation idea. Unfortunately I had to flesh out the idea before i could bring anyone into the project. So I made this comic instead. Best decision ever in my opinion.
The Keys to me
- Been drawing since I was 8. Got serious at 19.
- Pencil and Paper is losing the digital war.
- Studied Computer Graphics (3d animation) in college.
- Desire for 3d was killed by design. Graphic design.
- I don’t drink coffee. I don’t know how do I stay up at night.
