I came to know of Jason's work through a mutual friend several years ago when I still lived in NC. I'm in CA now, but I know who to go to for these unique gifts and illustrations. It's really fun to work with someone with Jason's eye for humor and color. Great combo for an artist. He has a great knack for putting words/descriptions into action! He recently illustrated a scene of a children's book I'd like to do someday, a gift for a five-year old friend. I think the drawing took a few days, once he began. Actually, the whole process, drawing, editing, finishing, took several days from start to finish. Super quick and professional. I loved the finished product. Jason also does sport team specific illustrations. I bought one and a gift certificate for an original for a fundraiser I put together here in CA and they were quite a hit.
