ABOUT ME

sup.

              I'm Jasen. Yes. with an E. I'm a professional illustrator and animator focused on creating personal projects and using my skills to fund those projects. I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil, but I didn't try to actually improve until I was about 12. I have 1 year of experience at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, but otherwise I'm completely self taught. My goal is to be able to live comfortably off of my art as a career with a family that I am able to fully support.

My inspirations stem from lots of different forms of media I was exposed to from a young age. I've always loved cartoons, and although I was exposed to anime at just 5 years old, I didn't really start watching lots of it or seriously enjoying it like I do until I was about 11 years old. I was a Nintendo Fanboy growing up, I didn't have a PS3 or an Xbox 360, so I played the Wii instead. This shaped a lot of my current interests as far as my art style is considered. But I also grew up on hip-hop music. My current favorite artists are Streetlight Manifesto, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Yonezu Kenshi, and Pinocchio-P. My tastes have expanded past just hip-hop since I was a child though. I'll listen to most anything.

My current pastimes that don't involve drawing or animation are skateboarding, playing video games with my friends, learning the bass, and I eventually want to learn piano, drums, and guitar as well.
