I am a 26 year old student at the Art Institute of Cincinnati, currently studying animation. I am in my third year, but have been producing art for many years. I am an accomplished poet, with one published thus far, but am in the process of having my own book done. My life revolves around art, it is my one true passion. I consider myself prolific with a pencil or computer, just to name a couple, but my biggest passion in painting, not in the traditional sense though, I prefer spray paint. I grew up doing graffiti in my small town, which ignited my passion for having a spray can. In my adult life, since I have chosen art as my profession, I choose not to taint my professional reputation with graffiti, unless it is for a client.

I am 22 years old and currently hoping to spread my name around a bit. I've been drawing ever since I was a child, and am very confident in my abilities. Currently, I am attending the Art Institute of Phoenix in the Video Game Art and Design and have had several of my art assignments showcased throughout the campus. I don't have much experience in art jobs but am eager to learn and apply my talents to whatever opportunities arise. My pay rates are flexible, as I'm not sure what newer artists typically charge, so I am open to a range of pay. I am eager to learn, and am always looking for new and exciting challenges to expand upon my portfolio. I am proficient at hand drawn art, and am well acquainted with digital art programs and photoshop. Those who have seen my artwork in real life have been openly impressed and showed great interest in my works. I am comfortable with a variety of genres of art, but excel greatly at character/animal/creature art, and natural landscapes. I am practiced in realism and hyper-realism and prefer that as my art of choice, but am always open to trying new and different methods. Further information may be added at a later time, but is also available on request. Feel free to email me at jbashexpart@yahoo.com if you wish to contact me personally.
