Artist Jay Ferguson
Jay in depth interview was published in issue 12. He is the master of dark art, dark pinup tyoe art I guess you would say. His work has appeared on a ton of comic book a graphic art novel covers.
What started out as a high school hobby, turned into a full time career for me. Painting has always been an escape from reality for me, in my youth I would lose myself for hours painting heavy metal album covers on my friends jackets. The passion I had for darker artwork turned into an obsession. That temporary escape soon became a necessity of life, a way to pour my heart and soul onto canvas.
I have been creating art full time for 20 years. This has enabled me to concentrate all my time and effort on one project at a time. Over the years, my works have won many awards, and been published in a few magazines. But still the ultimate reward is turning a customers blank canvas, into a piece of art.
I have always had a flair for dark imagery, from my school drawings, to the murals, and portraits that I do now. That’s not to say I am limited to that, I take pride in being able to work in different styles, and enjoy the challenges of something new. Thankfully, I have aligned myself with creative people in the art world, custom industry, and loyal customers who give me the creative freedom to paint my style of art. The journey of an artist is never ending, every piece is one more step towards a constantly evolving destination. This website is only a small sample of my works, but I hope that you enjoy it.
I have been fortunate over the years to work with many high profile clients. From Metallica’s James Hetfield, numerous NHL goalies, the Canadian Olympic Ski Team, Harley Canada, along with numerous corporate clients. My works can be seen around the globe, on television, and in print. I’ve had the honor of being featured in numerous publications. Revolution Motorcycle Mag, Motorcycle Mojo, MX Performance, and Barnetts, to name just a few. As well as being featured on Biker build-off, Biker TV, and Motorcycle Life Television. I hope to add you to my list of clients.
