Cory was introduced to Jayro’s work on the episode of Kray Z Comics and Stories where they discussed artist who need more attention, and was blown away by his work. It’s unique, interesting and shows influences from outside of comic books and more from 90’s animation. Jayro himself is an interesting person as well, driving himself to work on his art while keeping a full time job because he3 is driven to create.
You’ll be interested in his story and his art as you get to know more about him in the far ranging interview.
