Jay Wells is creating Paintings, illustrations, comics

I have been through many incarnations as an artist, and at one time or another, I've fallen in love with every facet of art: from comics and illustration to mechanical drafting to graffiti and street art. I am mostly known for my vibrant, weird, quirky, sci-fi infused collision of pop art and graffiti, but expect the unexpected when it comes to my work. I have not been allowed to pursue art through traditional avenues such as art school, so I am largely self-taught. For me, art is less of a lifestyle, and more of a personality trait.

Over the years, I have enjoyed the support of many wonderful clients, customers, fans, and patrons, and it would be impossible for me to have gotten by without them. When the world fails me, art is often the thing that saves me, so everyone who has supported me as an artist has been extremely important, and I never forget their kindness. Because of this I feel like my art has evolved from a one-way communication into a dialogue with my audience, and I very much enjoy breaking down the traditional barriers which keep the audience separate from art. I also enjoy bringing a bit of weird color to an otherwise dull world!
Tiers
A Look In The Books
$1 or more per creation
Not everything an artist creates becomes a finished painting or full page of comics- sometimes wonderful things come into being which live between the pages of our sketchbooks like little secrets made incarnate. Normally, to see these things, you'd have to know me in my day-to-day life. Get an ongoing peek into the deepest recesses of my inner world, where a huge diversity strange, funny, beautiful, complex, and frightening things live!
Finished works
$1 or more per creation
Be the first to see my finished pieces, before they go up for sale or are otherwise posted elsewhere, and get a full three days to ask me questions about them! This is for new projects only, never a previously completed work I've already shown to the world. Whether it's a digital illustration, a painted canvas or hat, a completed comic page, or a complete surprise-- get a look before anyone else!
Comics In Progress
$2 or more per creation
Get a look behind the scenes as I develop comics! Including works in progress, conceptual sketches, and a chance to see the pages as they develop.
Monthly print surprise!
$15 or more per creation
Every month, I create a secret print design and send it exclusively to my Patreon supporters in the mail. They will vary in size, usually 11x17 inches or less, and will be individually numbered, dated, and uniquely signed with my graffiti tag. Price includes postage within the United States; international addresses, ask me first. Want to get something weird in the mail?

When I reach $50 per month, I will be able to restart the license subscription for my Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator software. This will put my art production back in gear; I have been without the ability to edit scans, create vector art, or digitally color/letter my work for several months because I had to choose paying utility bills over the recurring cost of the software subscription. Once I have it back, I will be able to resume producing the stickers, posters and prints which were once my bread-and-butter.
