TR1 Studios specializes in illustrations, custom art and comics with a slant toward humorous cartoons with a style based on classic Saturday Morning Cartoons.  Bring some life to your website, publication or advertising with a custom drawn cartoon! Visit my Illustration page for samples of my work.

TR1 also provides voice-over and narration work.  I do local TV commercials and voice-over work for corporate/industrial sales and training videos.  In addition to the actual voice-over work, I am able to edit a variety of audio projects.  From simple audio backgrounds for Power Point presentations, to complete soundtracks for video productions, my studio is capable of a wide range of services.  Visit my audio services page for more information.

TR-1 Studios is the creative solution for your next illustration or audio project!

About Artist Byron Wilkins

Born in southern Illinois on a farm, I moved to the suburbs of Chicago in 1969 where I took my first drawing lessons at the local park district. I soon was visiting art supply stores to buy quill pens, India ink and Bristol board to draw comics “like Charles Schulz.” Even though I created comics for my high school and college newspapers in the 1970s, I ended up in the video production industry. In 2007, at age 50,  I decided to change careers from video producer to cartoonist. I immediately bought a tablet and Manga Studio EX. Those tools have been upgraded, but I have used only Manga Studio to produce my comics and illustrations. I attend several comic conventions each year taking in new commissions and illustrations projects. I produce the webcomic “1977 the Comic” about a struggling musician in the 1970s.  I also co-founded the Webcomic Alliance, a group of webcomic artists whose goal is to help out beginning webcomic creators.
