John Hirst

John “JD” Hirst is an illustrator who writes comics as his primary form of expression. His creation, Big Hero 101, is the tale of a great hero, Ace, who unites with alien creatures of all different races and breeds to fight against an evil darkness that is plaguing the galaxy. JD combines elements of anime and classic American superhero legends to tell a story of acceptance. He uses graphite on paper to make detailed scenarios and proves through his artistry that non-judgment and compassion are crucial to survival.
