Hi, I'm Jay. 

I'm a freelance illustrator (editorial and books, mostly, but anything goes!) currently working in the U.S. I'm in love with drawing people, everything fantasy, reading YA books and drinking copious amounts of caffeine.

 Send me am email about possibly working together, what you think about my work, or even just to say hi and discuss donuts.  I'd love to hear from you!
