Jay Wilkinson Versus the World

This Fort Worth multimedia artist is enjoying solving the “problem” of art.
Edward Brown
Jay Wilkinson’s first works of art were inspired by comics but not in a Roy Lichtenstein kind of way. “I was dyslexic,” Wilkinson said, “so my mom gave me comics. Books were overwhelming. Comic books were cool because I...
