Jon Blackburn

Visual Art – Ventura, CA

As a commercial digital artist for over 10 years, Jonathan has focused his body of work in Multimedia/Web/Graphic/Print and Brand Design.

My works are a mixture and marriage of the all the mediums that I love. Blending the traditional technique where I’m mixing my own colors combining airbrushing and paint strokes capturing them digitally. Sometimes I will take a print and put that on canvas and layer it with random brushstrokes then reuse that random style in a digital medium. This makes for some extremely interesting mixtures and compositions. The coolest things come out that even I didn’t expect. My deigns combined photography, custom Photoshop brush design blending and implementing traditional painting, pop-art, mixed media and street art mediums that are transformed to create colorful, wild and vivid collage-style expressions.

Jonathan has begun to actively compete in national art competitions which include a 2nd place win in the 2011 Ventura County Fair\'s Professional Arts Dept Design Competition (Digital Arts Division) as well as 1 of 3 runners up in the Chicago Fringe Festival Logo Design Contest / Art Takes Times Square 2012 live art showcase & Book / RAW Ventura\'s 2012 & 2013 \"Visual Artist of the Year\" Award.
