Hello there! My name is Jason Adams, AKA BlackSen. I'm a cartoonist....or...animator, if you will. I've been drawing all my life, but I haven't started REALLY taking my talents seriously until a few years ago;late 2008. I've animated several shorts which can be seen on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/black734 And I've done countless Digital drawings, most of which made out of boredom. If you have any question, I'm very friendly and high spirited, so feel free to ask!
