Jason Oakes


**Please check your city’s home page for guest appearance days!**


Jason has loved comic art since childhood, but was dissuaded from pursuing the style during his Army and art school days. After switching from fine to graphic art, he went to his first comic con and was inspired to pursue what is now a bold fusion of comic and fine art. His work recalls a variety of influences, from Michael Turner and J. Scott Campbell to Alphonse Mucha, Jackson Pollock and Van Gogh. He feels that all types of art and artists can learn and grow from unexpected sources and seeks to bring joy to the comic community that has so embraced his work.
