I am a proud owner of one of Jake's limited edition prints, "Craftsmanship", which hangs above my desk and drawing table in the studio. You can see him making it in the second video at the bottom of this post.
Jake's "Craftsmanship" reminds me, when I sit down to work everyday, of some of my most deeply held values as an artist and a human. As someone who also works with pen and ink, it inspires me greatly.
“He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
- Saint Francis of Assisi
Until next time ...
