Local artist turned writer turned writer/illustrator Tristan “T-Rex” Jones was born and raised in Melbourne and though spent much of his time growing up by the ocean, is certainly not the sailor most people find when Googling or Wikipediaing his name.
THIS Tristan has quickly made his mark in the comics industry following a critically acclaimed run on Mirage Studios’ “Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series that has since led to further comic smashes as a part of the creative team on IDW’s “Ghostbusters” ongoing series and the recently action-horror smash Infestation: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, also released from IDW.
With an already exciting 2012 under his belt, 2013 looks to be even more exciting as he has just been announced as the new artist for “Silent Hill” (following in the footsteps of incredible Aussie talents Ben Templesmith, Ashley Wood and Justin Randall), cover artist and writer for Archie’s “New Crusaders” and has been working hard with collaborator Greg Mclean (the director of “Wolf Creek” and “Rogue”) on raising funding for their new action adventure monster-mash “Sebastian Hawks”.
Tristan will have exclusive prints and comics available at the show, so come over and say hi!
Tristan looks forward to meeting all his fans at the Sydney and Perth expo’s where he will be appearing both days between 10 am and 5 pm.
