I know what you're thinking...Holy Shit, 2 blog posts in 2 days?! Is Jason is insane? Well, rest assured, I am quite surely batshit crazy, but luckily I am far less batshit crazy than the POTUS, so there's that. Bonus.
I actually just wanted to take a second to share the link to my page where I have discounted the poo out of some original artwork. So, without further ado, here is that: Sale Page
Originally, I had titled it a "Moving Sale", and while that is technically still true, it is also sort of a "Time to Clear Some Extra Room in the Studio Sale". And, truthfully, I am willing to negotiate as well if you would like to make an offer on a particular piece; however, I feel very strongly that I have made everything very reasonably priced. With that said, please do check it out! I have posted a variety of pieces on there from a wide range of sports and subjects. Alex Morgan, Mike Trout, and Oscar Robertson just to name a few.
Thanks for dropping by the bloggage, and hopefully you will check out the Sale Page and buy some stuff!...so I don't have to pack it up and take it with us, but rather ship it to you for your enjoyment!
Take care out there people. And, please, stop being such a dick to each other. - Jason
First, once again want to apologize for the delay in posting anything in here. Just A LOT going on in my life right now, and honestly haven't had much in the way of time to devote to all the art-ing & designing I'd like to be doing...which can be frustrating. I'll do my best to provide some updates on things I may have mentioned previously and haven't followed up on yet.
I was asked to create a custom graphic for Adam Greenberg, for his return to Wrigley Field where he was throwing out the ceremonial 1st pitch. Unfortunately, the graphic appeared during BP and not during his 1st pitch, so as far as I know, no photos were taken of it. So...I decided to create something in Photoshop to demonstrate what it could have looked like if it was a Perfect World.
We also had a booth at a local brewery for a vendor showcase...which was fun to drink beer and meet a lot of new people. But, unfortunately, it didn't result in a whole lot of sales, so that is always a disappointment. As an artist, it can be difficult to disassociate sales from rejection. In my head, I know the lack of sales isn't a rejection of my work. But, creating something is such a personal experience, and putting it on display/exhibit can be stressful for me...especially considering my introverted personality. But, enough about my artistic insecurities.
Here are a few graphics I've created recently, just for fun with Adobe Illustrator. I am particularly happy with the "Drink Beer" graphic. I feel like I captured the simplicity of the statement with the simplicity of the image. Being a huge stickler for details, sometimes going more minimalist for designs and artwork can be a struggle if I am creating something from scratch.
Well, hey, it's getting late, and I know our doggie is going to wake my ass up at 6am tomorrow morning (it's 12:47am EST right now), so I should wrap this up. With that in mind, guten nacht world. Keep it classy, Planet Earth. - Jason
Not rocket science, just a bit of an inside look at my artwork...with some photos and possibly some humor mixed in for your enjoyment.
