Jarod "Od" Perry-Richardson is an illustrator and creative arts teacher who resides in the sunless dystopia known-only in a language spoken in the bleakest night- as Cleveland, OH. Having braved the unforgiving wastelands of this infernal city for over two decades, he has taken up the profession of an illustrator as a creative outlet to which to tether his final semblance of sanity and hope.
Od specializes in pen and ink illustration, digital art, and character design. His objective is to use his artwork to tell stories ranging from the humorous to the dramatic.
Other passions of Od's include guitar and music theory, fantasy novels, and exploring with friends in Cleveland's many abandoned properties.
