About the Author

Jason Bays is a man who cannot remember a time when art wasn't what he was about. His aspirations were tutored by a drifter who took the time to show him how to draw in the back booth of his granny's diner on Main Street in Amsterdam, Missouri. Rocketships and trains were good enough to get him his first gig drawing dinosaurs for his second grade play. Later he collected degrees in Illustration and Design at the Kansas City Art Institute, leading to a successful career in advertising while also giving rise to his desire to make reading more accessible for his kids. Kid Rocket Studios is a Kansas City-based kid's entertainment company that develops, publishes, and markets branded children's entertainment properties for traditional, digital, and emerging media distribution channels. With a mission of "launching imaginations," the studio has developed a number of digital experiences. Their narrative, interactive comic, Kung Fu Robot, is their most far-reaching and popular.
