Toby Cypress, a graduate of the Joe Kubert Art School, has been working hard making a name for himself with his distinct artistic style for years. Toby has done commercial illustration, storyboarding, and graphic design for companies like Nike and Tokyopop, and he’s worked on projects from just about every major comic book publisher including DC, Marvel (including one of our favorite Strange Tales stories), Dark Horse, Image, and IDW. While he continues to do freelance work for others, he’s also started his own publishing label, PUNKROCK JAZZ, to create and publish his own stories that reflect his love of genre films, music, and Saturday morning cartoons. His first self-published book, Rodd Racer, sold out of two limited release printings before being reprinted by Image Comics for world-wide distribution.
Toby is currently a member of the Out of Step Arts collective. He has recently worked on Blue Estate from Image comics alongside artists Robert Valley and Nathan Fox, and The Ride for 12 Gauge Comics. He’s also working on a couple of his own projects including the online comic Kursk and the upcoming comic series Hatestreet. Look for these and much, much more from Toby in the near future.
