And just Who is THAT Jerry Boyd anyway? Why is he perpetually Marooned On Margo?
Jerry Thomas Boyd (aka THAT Jerry Boyd) is unique, just like everybody else. One way he expresses his particular uniqueness is through his art. Expression is the need of his soul.
Blessed at an early age with the ability to put down on paper drawings depicting recognizable people, places, and things, he has always garnered praise for his artistic ability. He primarily experiences, interprets and enjoys the world through his sense of sight. As a mature artist he creates through his sense of the visual, even when the creation is word based: he sees it first in his mind’s eye and expresses it in drawings or in stories.
His visual art is eclectic with little discernible personal style and he draws from many sources. He is inspired by the design eras of Art Deco, Bauhaus, and Mid-Century Modernism. His storytelling is also eclectic and strongly influenced by the motion pictures of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, and the early years of television in the United States; all the years which fed his taste in design. He revels in the dreamworld of The Movies with an emphasis on the outlandish color vibrancy of Technicolor musicals, Screwball comedies and darkness of Film Noir. The Horror and Science Fiction genres in film made a huge impression in his youth. He credits these Sci-Fi movies as being his personal introduction into visionary worlds.
Humor, both silly and satirical, is an essential ingredient in everything he creates.
In 1995 he all but abandoned his cartooning and drawing to take up writing. He published his first novel (to date), “Shift Happens”, in 2010.
And now he has created another planet.
Once he began envisioning this mirror planet to Mother Earth, he has been constantly re-inventing and discovering new aspects of life on Margo.
Marooned on Margo, in four issues, will be a starting point for your own exploration and creation of a better planetary model. Issue One is now available on Amazon.com. As the remaining three issues are created, he encourages you to periodically explore this site for more information and return for the occasional blog post and update on publication progress.
