Jeff Jones biography

 

Jeff Jones (1944-2011) - Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Jones began his professional comics career at some of the smaller publishers, notably King Comics, Charlton and Gold Key. His artwork, although primitive at first, evolved into a lush painterly style. The high level of draftsmanship drew comparisons to Frank Frazetta. The success of his work steered him toward more lucrative projects, such as painting paperback book covers. His comic book output is spare, but highly influential. His stories for Warren's Creepy, Eerie and Vampirella magazines are among his most memorable works. His first comics work appears to be a black and white tale for Creepy #16. Interestingly, Jones transitioned into a woman later in life, renaming herself Jeffrey Catherine Jones. Read more on Wikipedia.
