Byron grew up on a farm and moved to the Big Apple for college. After he earned a BFA in cartooning from the School of Visual Arts, he stayed, establishing himself as a concept and story board artist for EA Games, Google, Kodak and other clients. He prefers working in pen and ink but lately works entirely in digital for efficiency.
Byron also fronts a “salsapunk” band, Los Peeps, performing a mix of Spanish rhythms with fast-paced punk rock. He visits his parents on the farm every so often for homegrown food and a break from the bustling city.
