Illustration! It’s Nice That kindly wrote some impossibly nice things about me, also I put together an annual illustration dump on Behance.
Wisdom! I’m teaching Eccentric Illustration online (ILL379 OL1) next Spring again, so if you’re an AAU student, why not sign up. Here’s Lindsay Watson, she took my class this semester and made exceptionally lovely things.
Also! Charlotte Dumortier,Amanda Greenberg, Saaya Masaki, Ben Juers, Anna Deflorian, Stephen Collins, Elliot Freeman, Simone Massoni & Ilaria Falorsi, Bendik Kaltenborn, Maria Ines Gul, Cathon. Love them all.
Bestiality! I don’t make lists because I’m not a Nick Hornby character, but if I were, I’d write “Lost Cat by Jason.” Ten times.
Italy! I had some of my strips somehow translated into Italian by the talented and patient Elena Orlandi, you can get them from Retina. Also, this.
UK! More of my stuff available from Impossible Books.
New York! I’ll be in you for my SOI award thing January 8-13. I have two other things in the show by the way (the Vogue bag & the Chronicle cover).
Resolutions! Read more, draw less, go out/make frenz/do things, find a new style, sigh backwards
Questions! everythingisfucked asked you: I’ve been following you for some time now and have become quite the fan of your expressive and interesting style. I’d like to ask about how you started out, what your beginning influences were in art, and how you have changed (in your own view) since then.
Thank you! To me research and self-editing are more important than tight skills and good ideas, which come naturally after a decade of beating your head against the desk (not literally). You can listen to my interview on MITTE in which I go on about my troubled path in too much detail.
Anonymous asked you: Роман, вы читаете замечательных писателей и рисуете под их влиянием столь же замечательные иллюстрации. А знаете ли вы про такого автора, как Роберт Эйкман (Robert Aickman)?
Нет, но теперь знаю. Спасибо!
robotpriestess asked you: I think you’re pretty spectacular. And so are your glasses.
Thanks! I just got new ones, they’re ever better.
Finally! My Kickstarter is almost over. Thanks to everyone who contributed, I’ll start sending things out as soon as.
PS! If you have a Motorola X/G phone, try turning it off & on again.
