Deviant of the Day

In my mind, artists are the true foundation of our society. Deviant of the Day is a blog about these people. Creatives hold the key to unlock everything exciting and wondrous about this world. Painters, photographers, chefs, sculptors, musicians, tattoo artists, engineers, designers, etc…you all blow my mind. Let’s stick to our guns and never give up.

Deviant of the Day #34 - Jack Jerz

Jack Jerz is an amazing artist from Kensington, Brooklyn. His work is insane and I love it! His fascination of history, mythology, and old and abandoned architecture is much of what influences his work..."comics, screenplays, regular plays, illustration, art direction, t-shirts, skateboards, album art, psychedelic blacklight posters." Recently, Jack has been independently publishing comic books of which he enjoys creating worlds of monsters, robots and river gods. He is currently working on his 3rd comic book, "Way Far Out at the Edge of the Earth" which soon can be purchased online along with his previous 2 comics here.

You can see more of Jack's work on the walls of Reciprocal Skateboards in the East Village and Jackbar in Williamsburg. You can even get his art inked permanently onto your body should you wish.  Yes, he is a tattoo artist and works at Eight of Swords. He books by appointment only, so shoot him an email here if ya need some ink.

"I'm a viscous uncaring capitalist and will lend my pen to anything if the price is right. Faceless corporations, I am your willing acolyte, show me the gateway to your ambrosia palace and I will drink the kool-aid and do the deepest, darkest and most perverted of your narrative or artistic bidding...

... for like 3 or 4 years till I've saved up enough scratch to move to a vineyard in Serbia with my archeologist wife and you can all kiss my ass."
