John Rodriguez is an artist breaking into the comic book industry with skills in both traditional and digital drawing tools. Growing up reading Wolverine and Spider-Man comics and tracing artwork by Todd Mcfarlane and Sam Keith, he developed a love for sequential art. A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art, John, who also goes by JAR, has always had a passion for working in the comic book industry.

JAR is also a graphic designer and photographer. Both skills have helped him tremendously with page layouts that guide the eye and framing scenes cinematically within a comic panel.
