06_Jason bio picJason starting drawing caricatures as a summer job after graduating from college at RISD. His career in animation and illustration took him away from the caricature scene for many years.

About 7 years ago Jason caught the caricature bug again and began a quest to learn everything he could to strengthen his drawing skills and be a caricature artist again. He practiced night and day and studied techniques from the masters.

Jason now can confidently add “caricature artist” to his resume and draws for live events and commissioned work. He is excited to teach this class and pass on the knowledge he has gained in his caricature quest!
