That was a wonderful interview. Very realistic about the difficulties and inspiring for what we all can achieve

Very cool.

I've noticed before what looks to be Hebrew script on your right arm. What motivated that?

But I'm with Bobby, I could never decide on something I wanted on my body for the rest of my life. And I was in the Marines so that puts me a very small minority since most jarheads seem to have at least one tat.

I'm just getting started on my art again precisely because I didn't focus the way you did. But I guess I had a lot to get out of my system.

Now I'm a "business man" so maybe that will help with the business of art. I've already dealt with the good and the bad clients.

All in all very good stuff in that interview.

Hey man, really cool interview on chiustream!!!! It's always helpful to hear other artist's success stories, and struggles. My drawing was you holding a smoking pipe......I saw a picture of sherlock Holmes wearing a similar hat, so I based your drawing off it. Cool contest, I'll be ready for the next one!!!!

When you submit to a potential client - someone who doesn't know your work - what's your usual submission?

Do you tend towards showing more or less material?

What few outlets I've had for my drawing and writing have come from very unorthodox, unplanned contacts where it wasn't so much of the "right" submission, but just the right place at the right time.

I was looking forward to that interview, and it was every bit as good as I expected. Thanks for sharing that - and for this blog! You're awesome and one of my favorite artists.

Solid interview Jason. Even made a few cool funny faces. Anyone serious about being something beyond a Sunday artist should take heed of your words and advice. Really enjoyed seeing the results of your toil (of love) and the story behind you getting there. If a baker worked 1/2 as hard he/she would turn out some very tasty bread.. no?

Good interview, Jason. For some reason it stopped after 44 min. on Chiustream... I'll see if I can see the rest of it later.
Good inspiration, though.
Let me know when you'll be at The Society of Illustrators.

Amazing interview Jason, I've watched a couple of times already, especially the part when you announce the winner :D. I couldn't sleep that night. Thanks a lot Jason!

It's so cool that you are honest and clear about what got you where you are now with your art. It's an inspiration to see and hear the results of your hard work and dedication to your art. It's refreshing to hear how you fit your work load around a regular family life and the complete devotion you give to both. I had to eat humble pie and admit to myself that i lacked some of your devotion and well balanced attitude but i will persist in putting this right. This blog and this interview help me so much and i am grateful.

Hi Jason,
I've seen the competition, and I think it was a great idea that the winner will get a caricature of himself, it worths much more than any gift. I've made a little sketch for the competition, but I didn't have much time to draw a proper picture so now I'd like to show you the caricature I did just for fun: http://u2ro.blogspot.com/2009/12/jason.html . I don't like to draw caricatures so much, I rather paint portraits. I've seen the interview too there were lots of interesting things you said and I'd like to congratulate for everything you have achieved.
