Last year at the Novi Motorcity Con, I had the pleasure of meeting Jay Fife. He quite possibly the most talented artist you’ve never heard of.
I’ll let his website‘s blurb lay the groundwork… Jay is a proficient yet expedient portrait, pin-up, cover and fantasy illustrator based in the Upper Ohio Valley. Jay draws from a variety of influences including comics, horror and science fiction television and films. Jay is available for a variety of commissions at a very reasonable rate. You may contact him through this site to schedule a commision or portrait. You may contact him also for rates or a special estimate
I very recently got to see his newest sketchbook… WOW! Fantastic stuff! The best thing I can compare his detailed body and portrait work to is Greg Land or Greg Horn. Jay already has a huge grassroots online fanbase, and it seem like it is ready to explode. With the convention season upon us, there is a good chance you might be somewhere where Jay is… do yourself a big favor, go up say hi (on top of his talent, he’s actually quite pleasant too) and get one of his sketch books… a decade from now when everyone knows the art work of Jay Fife, you’ll be glad you did.
