Drayonis has been drawing as far back as he can remember. When he was only 3 years old his older brother Cecil Roberts (an artist as well) challenged him to a drawing contest on the family living room floor…..and from that contest (which is still ongoing) he started his career as an artist hoping to one day make it into mainstream comics. When he was 16 he got a job at the local Six Flags doing caricatures for a small art company contracted to the park. 

After working his way up to manager, he eventually purchased the contract at Six Flags and started his own company "The Exaggerated View Caricature Company". The company started out with only six employees but over time grew to employ well over 30 artists and open in multiple entertainment locations across Texas. While growing his business and working constantly, Drayonis has worked for a short lived independent comic book company, finished CD covers for local artists, designed countless logos, and created animation shorts for a local Hip-hop television show. 

Finally, he has come back to his first love, "Comic Books". If you are an artist and would like to be featured on State of the Art, shoot an e-mail to Make sure to check out Drayonis' website and online comic, "The Dog Years".
