Lives & works in Colorado

Creator, writer, and artist of The Ferrokin published by Theory Comics

Jennifer Swartwood has a B.A. in Art/Graphic Design from Western State Colorado University. She's known for creating photo realistic paintings, drawings, graphic art, etc. In the graphic novel industry, she surprised everyone with The Ferrokin Series. By adding a fine art style and basing her story on real science and history, she created something unique. The science in the book is elaborated on in the back of the actual book and on The Ferrokin website (theferrokin.com). (All science in the book has been verified by scientists to make sure it's as real as possible.)

 

Swartwood has been a professional artist since 2009 and began showing her artwork in galleries in 2013. From then on she began working to develop The Ferrokin into what it is now. She recently began showing more fine art pieces in galleries and sells many to independent collectors outside of a gallery setting. Her artwork has been published throughout the years in magazines, newspapers, websites, books (more than for just Theory Comics), etc. and has paintings all over the US in private
collections.

 

When in high school, Swartwood was the third runner up in a national talent competition for singing/music. She was the National Anthem singer for all school events at her high school. She continued to sing for all sporting events at her University (and others) until she graduated. She attended college on an Academic and Athletic Scholarship. She eventually was awarded an Art Scholarship during her first year in the art program at WSCU. During her senior year she was a Team Captain, Academic All American, Conference Champion, and National Qualifier in Track for the Hammer throw. She still holds the 3rd furthest throw in WSCU history for the hammer and the 10th furthest in the weight throw.

Jennifer is currently working on a supplemental book for The Ferrokin Origin, with Part Three (finale) of The Ferrokin Origin series having been recently released in August 2017.
