Ross Perot Jr. for Dallas CEO




This was a spot illustration I did a few weeks back, another one of those day and a half turn arounds . . . never seem to have as much time as I'd like . . . but that goes with the job I guess? This was a fun piece to work on, and the A.D. is great to work with which is also a bonus!

I decided to rely more on expression and posture rather than gags and so forth to tell the story. Also, I felt that the colors used could really help set the mood, for that, I dipped into the film industry for inspiration. I always loved the look of the first Matrix movie, the colors, the mood etc . . . I didn't watch the Matrix, or look at any references of the Matrix while working on this piece. Instead, I kept that feeling in mind while painting . . . I wanted the mood, the color . . . besides this guy and Keanu
could be twins . . . just kidding.

This is awesome Jason, it has such a poetic touch to it, different from your normal work. It has more of a deeper look to it, which is awesome that your able to achieve that. One thing is to paint well the other thing is to connect with the viewer in a different level and you have definitely achieved that, Bravo!
