Currently, Jared Lee is the owner of the commercial and short film production firm Grim Film. During the most recent coronavirus pneumonia pandemic, “Horologist” was born. Jared Lee made the decision to resume creating comics because he was unable to film at the time or create animation.
At the same time, Jared also put his dream into action by beginning to create a quartet of short stories that explored various facets of human avarice. Then, he collaborated with a cartoonist by the name of Cross to turn these 4 stories into comic books, the very first known as “Horologist.”
