Jamie Primack

Booth A-4

Jamie Primack is a comic artist, writer, and illustrator best known as the author and artist of the science fiction comic series BINARY STAR. She is also a graduate of the first ever class at the International School of Comics in Chicago. Although she was born and raised in Chicago, Jamie spent three years studying and working abroad in Japan before returning to the United States to pursue a career in writing and illustration.

Inspired by her own parents’ love of science fiction and horror, Jamie’s artistic style combines futuristic technology with the aesthetics of gothic subcultures. Jamie like to refer to this style as “space goth.” To create illustrations that are both cosmic and dark, Jamie utilizes various inking tools such as brushes, technical pens, dried ink, white out, and metallic paint. When she’s not creating ink illustrations, Jamie works on her web comic series, BINARY STAR, which tells the story of an interstellar bounty hunter who’s forced to team up with the enemy alien she was going after. The series has been running both online and in print for two years and ten chapters. Jamie also works as a freelance artist and can be found tabling at various comic conventions and art shows around the country.
