About

I’m Jonathan Beistline and I am drawing attention to firefighters and first responders with my sketchbook and artwork. I work with departments to insert myself, sketchbook in hand, into situations to draw and document what I experience. Tragedy is not the focus of my artwork.  My goal is to find the quiet moments, the training, the preparedness, the work, and the quick actions that many people do not get to witness captured in artwork thereby giving a unique visual perspective into the daily lives of our first responders.

All sketches, drawings, paintings, and illustrations are being produced from first hand experience, observation, and ride alongs with various fire rescue departments. The artwork serves as historical documentation of the department and enters the permanent art collection of that department for use and display.

I have various tiers through which you can support my efforts to draw attention to the men and women serving on the frontlines of our communities.
