Yay! We begin our month of spotlights on our members with a quick run down on Jay Penn -
I was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1977. I have since grown a beard. It has a reddish tinge in some lights.
I’ve always enjoyed drawing, and pretty early on decided that I wanted to make some sort of career out of it. I am mostly drawn to fantasy-themed art, and my own work reflects that. I’d like to, some day, see my art on a Magic: The Gathering card or two, maybe the odd Marvel comic cover as well.
I usually work with traditional media – pencil, inks, the occasional dab of watercolour. But I am looking to branch out into oils and digital soon.
I am currently producing work for a few places here and there, most notably a RPG fanzine called ‘Loviatar.’ This year is all about getting the work to start coming in as I build up my name and fill out my portfolio.
And for the record, I am not, nor ever have been, the Eggman, much less the Walrus.
