Jake brings together many of his interests in his work including pop stars, cartoon characters, clowns, vehicles, robots and tv shows. These subjects transform and change and take part in a world of Jake’s creation. In this world Jake combines his fascination with media and fictional characters and his everyday experiences. Pop stars and superheroes morph into himself or people he knows. Characters take on heroic tasks, go on adventures, and become entwined in fantastical and surreal situations.
Jake uses a variety of mediums to make his works, his starting point is usually a bold line drawing done in his unique definitive style. He then fills these images in in either pastels, pens, inks or paints, exploring their range as his work develops.
