Creating Masterpieces with a Micron Pen

We chatted with artist Jared Rawlinson to talk about what inspires his creative practice and the artists that inspire him most.

 

Can you tell us a little bit about the moment you realized you were an artist?

Growing up, I was always interested in drawing, but I never took any of it seriously. It was in my early 20s and my involvement in music when I began to consider myself an artist. I played drums in a few bands and we were fortunate to work with some great people on our albums. It was in the process of writing, recording, producing and designing liner art I realized that, even within an environment of collaboration, I had a unique voice. I had something to say to the world. Over time, my creative notions evolved from music to graphic design/creative direction and ultimately into the art I create now.
