Jay Willson

Jay Willson has been a member of COMICOPIA since 2005, and has enjoyed every minute of the experience, developing wonderful friendships with his fellow Copians. Being one of the few non-Canadians in the group, Jay was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, but moved to the desert of Arizona many years ago. After 11 years as an award-winning Art Director, Illustrator and Graphic Designer, Jay left the advertising field to take on the world of information technology, working with a team to establish one of the first enterprise-wide Geographic Information systems in the country. Today, Jay continues in I.T. as the manager of a group of application support staff for a local government, and as project manager for large-scale application implementations. In the dark hours of the night, Jay still gives into his love of drawing by producing illustrations for Comicopia and other zines. He also edits the Comics section of the website, writes book reviews for various websites and keeps in shape by weight lifting, running a few miles each day at 4am and being a decent guy to his understanding wife and his three kids.
