Comics & Art by

Ray Baehr


Hi, I'm Ray! I’m a cartoonist, prehistory buff, sci-fi nerd, and anthropology student. My work is primarily inspired by Paleolithic art, outer space, LGBTQIA+, and cute characters! I have a BFA in cartooning and illustration and I'm working toward a BA in anthropology. Eventually I would like to become a paleoanthropologist so I can study cave art sites and make educational graphic novels about them.I'm available for work as an inker for comics!

Vézère Valley Venture

In 2009 I went to France to visit Paleolithic cave art sites with the hope of one day making a fictional graphic novel about one of the artists.

NOTE: The story I was originally writing has since evolved into The Lore Keeper which has a different main character, but a similar premise.
