My Bio
Born and raised in Minnesota, at an early age I could always be found with a pencil or pen in hand drawing Ninja Turtles or Nintendo characters… most often on homework and in class at times when I wasn’t supposed to be drawing. Math is overrated anyway. Growing up, it was clear to me that I would pursue a career and lifestyle in the arts. My primary sources of inspiration have always been music, music, family, music, friends, and music. I’m of the belief that designing without some form of music blasting is sacrilegious. Currently residing in the tropical climate of Fairfield, CT, I’m most likely drawing something right now, even if it’s a Saturday night… so lame.

I can't believe I found this, my family bought some of your artwork and then I just randomly found this
I live in Minneapolis so it was cool to see that you were born in Minnesota.
Hey Jay, I just want to say, you're work is awesome dude. Inspiring. Any plans to bring a book out?
Thanks for the kind words - and YES, I do have plans to put something together, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thanks for the support!
