Jenny Frison is a comic book cover artist. Her interest in comics began with a Wonder Woman storybook she enjoyed as a young girl. She majored in illustration at Northern Illinois University before attending The Kubert School of Art.[1][2] During school, she decided she wanted to focus on cover art and quit before her third year to teach herself.[1] She met writer Tim Seeley, who asked her to draw a cover for Hack/Slash after he looked at her website.[2] The two became friends, and they now share a work space at Four Star Studios in Chicago, Illinois.[3][4]

Her artistic process starts with a pencil sketch followed by a tonal drawing on gray paper. She colors the image in Photoshop.[4] She was nominated for "Best Cover Artist" in the 2013 and 2015 Harvey Awards.[5][6]
