Hi! My name is Jackson, but you can call me Jack or Tjota (pronounce; cho-tah
), most people do
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 purely 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!
I'm also an apprentice tattoo artist since mid-2016. It's been fun drawing on skin (and very different!). Hopefully I can become as professional as I am in digital.
Also; I'm a self-taught amateur guitarist and pianist.
I enjoy playing PS4 games, watching sci-fi/action movies and series.
