Hi! My name’s Jared Barel. I’m an LA based comic book artist. I specialize in what I like to call “live-action” illustration. What that means is much of my work in comics and commissions is based on photography to give my comic work a lifelike cinematic feel.
I’ve written and illustrated the award winning graphic novels, BRIELLE AND THE HORROR and GREY, released by my company Loaded Barrel Studios. I’ve written and illustrated the graphic novel DARK CLOUD released by De La Frontera Press. I illustrated the graphic novel, HA.I.LEY, written by Shane Riches and released by ComicMix. And I was an illustrator on the graphic novels, STEVE MCQUEEN IN LE MANS vol. 1 and 2, under license from CBS and released by Garbo Studio. I’ve worked with clients such as GamesWorkshop for Warhammer 40K, DMC and the Hellraisers, Comedian Paul Scheer, Sprint, Heineken, and many more!… Oh, and I also directed, edited and produced the feature film THE INCOHERENTS available on VOD everywhere now!
