  1. Hey, beautiful!
    This blog is a great move. Sometimes words are as good as pictures. The ink washes are really nice, but I still think the self portrait is a little scary. Hard. But it’s just a picture, right? I guess looking at yourself is sanity-making, as lonk as your glasses are Truth.
    Beautiful work, Jake. I like how the people in the sketches are so really seen. They are humans I want to meet. And as a photographer catches what he sees, and you can see what the photographer inspires in those he portrays, so I see some of the real you in the people you paint and sketch. You are fully present with your people. I love that about you!

  3. Wow Jake,
    It’s been so awesome to see how your work has evolved and grown over the years. The east coast seems to agree with you :)
