Creator profile: Tony Harris

The Macon, Ga., Telegraph profiles artist Tony Harris, who once a month invites friends and neighbors to his Lawton Avenue home to serve as photo reference for characters in Ex Machina:
By day, Jimmy Hill is the chief financial officer at Middle Georgia Ambulance.

But he leads somewhat of a double life. Tony uses him as the model for the main character, Mitchell Hundred, in the comic book Ex Machina.

"I didn't have a clue what I was getting into, but it has been fun," he said. "It's kind of weird seeing yourself in a comic book. You have to get used to it."
