Name's Jack. Just, Jack.
I direct and create traditional, digital and stop motion animation, cartoons, illustrations, scripts, compositions, storyboards, character designs and concept art, surrealist funky things, musical nonsense, cosplay, weapons of various sizes and all around shameless nerdy confectionaries.
'Shilo (Colour Alteration)' Drawn with the Wacom Cintiq utilizing Manga Studio Pro, and the sexy brushes, 2016
When it comes down to it, I'm just a person who likes to draw a lot.
Here's some feedback:
Bill Plympton: “If you are looking for an artist who is ready to take on anything, seeks to learn and keep learning, works incredibly hard with a cheery disposition and brings inspiring creativity to her work, you will find few as qualified.”
Christopher McGee: "A dedicated production artist under intense pressure. I was impressed by her work ethic, ability to deal with difficult production deadlines and her flexibility when assigned to various tasks.”
Karl Staven: “Articulately engaged, creatively focused, incredibly organized, and a general pleasure to have as a student. I tend to only award a couple of “A” grades in each class that I teach. Jack has received this grade in her classes with me. Her animation skills and understanding of timing are top of her class.”
My work is a continuing journey, always learning, always moving forward no matter the bumps along the road. The bulk of my art-ventures (yes, I'm also quite corny) are showcased on my official website, 'jozzomov.com' but you can view other bits and pieces at 'vimeo.com/jozzomov' and 'jozzomov.newgrounds.com'. It's all part of something more vast, slowly coming together. Also feel free to view my resume at 'https://www.linkedin.com/in/jozzomov'
To sum it up, I am a conduit of something bigger, something beyond myself. I believe we have only touched the ostensible surface of the constructs defined under art and music. Both as singularities or combined harmoniously can cure disease at statistically alarming rates, open minds to new ideas, bond lives together, give hope to those who feel otherwise resoundingly lost, and bring the most stoic of sentience crumbling to their knees explicitly foaming with crocodile tears of joy.
I dream to seek the answers and keep questioning, to awaken others towards discovering their potential while relinquishing the restrictions and damage carried over from a failed barter system that outgrew its own construct, a commercially driven world collapsing in on itself, and generations of collectively conditioned fears once instinctual survival mechanisms rendered mostly detrimental in recent amalgamations. Every living being has dreams. As long as those goals do not harm or torture another, it is terribly important that everyone have the freedom to pursue them regardless of religion, occupation, who they love or what a person fucking looks like. Every single individual is born with that right.
In turn through these artaclysmic efforts, they help me to grow and I think learn to be a better person. Also always open to collaboration, don't be shy. Just ask.
So, that pretty much covers it. Thanks for reading and taking an interest. Life as we know it is far too brief to be ordinary; so let's move some hearts, get messy and most importantly, let's get weird.
