Jeffrey Catherine Jones passed away yesterday on May 19. Jones will likely be remembered for her incredible talents as a comic book artist and illustrator who worked skillfully in the science fiction and fantasy genres. Much of Jones' work owes its artistic inspiration to Frank Frazetta (who later called Jones the greatest living artist) who also recently passed away just over a year ago, and she would later developed her own distinctive style. Jones' life was quite interesting and at times tumultuous. Born as a male on January 10, 1944, Jones grew up feeling out of place in his body and with his gender, suffering from depression which later lead to drug and alcohol abuse. It wasn't until after recovering from these self-destructive habits that he finally came to terms with himself and in the late 1990s he began hormone replacement therapy and adopting a female persona. She was very likely the first well-known transgender artist in her field. But with all of this drama aside, one must look back on Jones' life and accept her for who she was and for her impressive artistic talents. She created works that were at once immediately familiar in their style and execution and yet possessed a subtle, melancholy, uniqueness that was original and unparalleled in her field. She will be missed.
