My Bio

Hellooo :happybounce: My name is Jackson, Tjota is my surname (pronounce; cho-ta. It's an old Van Ophuijsen spelling system implemented by the Dutch. Long story). I speak English, Indo, and a little bit of French :dummy:


I'm a freelance digital illustrator living in Jakarta, Indonesia. I started with pencil realism, then picked up my first tablet in 2008. I was still studying back then, so didn't draw that much. Not until 2012 that I started working as an illustrator!


My skills are mostly self-taught, in a sense that I never took proper art classes of any kind. I graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne, with a Multimedia Degree. Picked up a couple of useful skills in 3D, film FX, animations and photography along the way, though most of them aren't used much lately. I learn by watching other pros!

UWWOOHH Hey look a DD !! I remember years ago when I was a young aspiring artist, I received a Daily Deviation for the first time. It was my first real recognition, so to speak. I was hit with extreme ecstasy, literally jumped around my apartment like a drugged rabbit! Holycrapp that made me incredibly happy, like I just won a jackpot ! Eventually I got many loyal customers, some became friends (online), and the work gave me good amount of income. I am now proud to be a professional book-cover artist. I get more DDs and other awards after that, but I will never forget that first time, and how Deviantart changed my life, cheers !! @devart
