Journey of an Absolute Rookie

On September of 2002, Jon embarked on his journey to pursue a career in art.  Having no prior experience making art, he set off towards his goal of becoming a professional artist.  Jon's journey was unique in that he began logging every step of his process.  On an art blog website ( he posted every single drawing or painting he created without fail.  Nine years later, individuals logging on to his thread could see all the struggle, frustration, and success that came with along the journey.  

*** is no longer around, but Jon is currently working on a book that shows the full process of his journey.  More details will be updated on this soon.  So keep an eye out!***

In the meantime, here is a wonderful video created by Mark Erdmann that shows the transformation process from 2002 - 2011.
