Jazz is an illustrator and skateboarder living in Leicester.
“Skateboarding is the best thing out there! It opens your eyes to such a varied and creative world, it gives you the chance to meet so many people and look at life around you in a completely different way.
Skateboarding and making some form of art or expressing yourself creatively is the key to happiness.
When I have an idea for an illustration I usually just go straight in with pen or paint and hope for the best, filling up space with repeating pattern and line work and hope to make something visually appealing.
I’m really into Japanese skateboarding as the videos and art are on another level like Evisen and tightbooth, brands such as Magenta Skateboards, Krooked, Traffic Skateboards and Polar skate co all project skateboarding and their art direction in such a unique and exciting way, that gets me hyped and brakes away from the norm
The No Comply Network is rad because it gives creative people a chance to showcase their art and get into the public eye and get influenced by each other and connect their passions!
I’ve got a few events coming up where I’m selling my work such as an event called Frida Kahloft on the 31st of August at Firebug in LC and a festival event at Orangetree in LC on the 1st Sept. Also doing a few commissions here and there, doing a little something for @cartwightskatebmxshop and a few other bits and bobs.
