As a commercial digital artist for over 10 years, Jonathan has focused his body of work in Multimedia/Web/Graphic/Print and Brand Design.
Recently beginning to bring new inspiration to light, he has begun to actively compete in national art competitions which include a 2nd place win in the Ventura County Fair's Professional Arts Design Competition (Digital Arts Division), 1 of 3 runners up in the Chicago Fringe Festival Logo Design Contest 2011 as well as ArtistsWanted "Art Takes Times Square" global arts competition hosted by Questlove of the Roots and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Darkline Ink was also formed in 2008 and realized online in early 2010 as his virtual design company as well as housing a community of featured artists alongside providing a design community of other like-minded artists including design blogs, tutorials, featured artists and his design portfolio.
His designs combined photography, custom Photoshop brush design blending and implementing traditional painting, pop-art, mixed media and street art mediums that are transformed to create colorful, wild and vivid collage-style expressions.
