Location: US Web: www.jaybendt.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ME DIA: Photoshop, ink Freelance illustrator and comic artist Jay lives and works in America’s Midwest. Her love of colour and line come from her training as a painter and printmaker. She has an obsession with storytelling, whimsical and fantastical art and a flair for the theatrical, rooted in the many mythology and fairy tale books and films of her childhood.
“Being able to create work that doesn’t conform to real life is as close to creating magic as a human can get,” she says. “While most of my work’s process is at least 50 per cent digital, I can’t give up the feeling of holding a piece of finished art in my hand. It’s amazing.”
