As a creator, Jason Kimble has a common theme that runs consistently through his work, it’s the art of
storytelling. This is not say the artist sets out each time to tell some grand tale or even offer a message
with the art he creates. No, he sets forth to make his viewers think for themselves. It doesn’t have to be
deep or intellectual, or cast a subjective light on anything in particular, but it does have to be fun.
Jason has been a professional illustrator since 1990, beginning his career as an airbrush artist and
starting an apprenticeship in tattooing, a profession he remains doing to this day. The nature of both
endeavors, have allowed him to build on a variety of skill sets, from perspective to dynamic shading to
portraiture and anatomy. Jason continues to utilize these lessons while learning new innovations as
often as they are presented to him.

published comic book creator with a number of books released over his career, most recently he colored
