Jolly Roger Studio is one of the oldest and most dynamic comic book and design studios in the South.  Under the guidance of founder Tony Harris, Jolly Roger continues to expand its horizons and produce work in a variety of media.  The studio’s current membership includes:

Tony Harris made his first real splash in comics in 1994 with DC Comics’ Starman.  Co-created with James Robinson, Starman garnered vast critical acclaim, an Eisner Award (the comics industry’s equivalent of the Oscar), and is currently being developed for television by ABC and Tollin/Robbins Productions.  He has also provided artwork for titles including Doctor Strange, The Hulk, Daredevil, Justice League, Sandman, and his creator-owned Obergeist and Lazurus 5, to name a few.  Harris has done a myriad of design and storyboard work outside of comics, the highlights including storyboarding a Chevrolet Super Bowl spot, design and illustration work for Universal Studio’s “The Mummy,” and the style guide for the 20th Century Fox feature film based on Marvel Comics’ “Daredevil.” 

Tom Feister began his career as an illustrator and storyboard artist while still attending the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design.  After graduation, Feister went on to study animation under master animator Richard Williams.  His career has seen him working in the varied and related fields of comic book illustration, animation, and merchandising/toy design.  Career highlights include supplying monthly covers for DC Comics’ Legion, penciling Devil's Due and Image Comics' G.I. Joe: Frontline, a multitude of toy and merchandising style guides for Marvel Entertainment, and a series of commercial spots for Cartoon Network. 

J.D. Mettler is a digital colorist and designer who began his career working in art restoration.  He soon shifted to graphic art and advertising, and only recently began working in comics.  Since joining Jolly Roger Studio, he has worked on projects such as Top Cow’s Obergeist, DC Comics’ Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and the sequel to JSA: Liberty File, Marvel Comics’ Sabertooth: Mary Shelly Overdrive—not to mention the style guide for 20th Century Fox’s “Daredevil” feature film.
