Been a whiiiiiiiile since I updated this thing, so i figure its about time. Since my last post, I've had an art show (on display for one more week), made 5 skate videos, finished 8 new art pieces, produced another song, and a whole bunch of other rad stuff in these last couple of months.
So uhhhhhh yea lets get started...
These dudes are actually second-version pieces of previous works that I've sold. Some nice person liked them so much that she wanted me to do them over so that she could have them. I happily obliged.
This one is for me and my honey. We just had our one year anniversary so I dotted her this. (She's the giraffe).
This one was part of a "Hobo Series" that I originally made in photoshop for Nomadic. That's me in the boat going down the canals of Amsterdam. They were gonna print the digital one on the bottom of a deck but never got around to it.
This is the current board that I'm riding.
Yes, this is an eagle. Yes that is Mt. Rainer. You can actually see me skating these boards in the videos below. The eagles head board is featured pretty well in the Renton Edit.
This is a Blue Grouse. I made this one for the local bar near my house, called the Blu Grouse. They have always been really really awesome so I felt like I should make this in appreciation of their radness.
Aaaaaand this one is for the best pizza spot in White Center.
This place is awesome!!! My work is still up there, and will be for only ONE MORRRREEEE WEEEEKKK!!!!! So go get some pizza and peep it.
When I got there, I had no idea that I had so much work! It really surprised me when I laid it all out like this.
Alllllll righty then thats about it for art. Let's move on to what I love most.
These are still frames of a super fun night at Renton Skatepark. IT WAS SOOOOO COLD.
A couple of weeks later, a Mukilteo kid named Jack filmed some fun on the Muk miniramp and took a few photos. Check it out! You can click the photo to make it bigger.
A few days later, I was going through some unused footage that I had on my computer, and I saw that I aaalllllmooost have enough footage to make a full part!!! So I made a preview with it. Chickadee checkskis.
A few weekends ago, I was skating with my buddy Justin at Beacon. He has a gopro so we filmed some stuffs. Heres one of the still frames that I thought looked rad because of the sun between my foot and my board.
I took all the footy Justin sent me and made a promo for casual. It goes like this....
Earlier this week I found a hard drive that was FULL of old Nomadic footy as well as some gems that never got used for anything.
So that's it for skating in the last couple of months. If your still reading this far, thank you so much for stickin around. Only one more thing to go! And, of course that would be...
Been a while since I out a track, but I was home and had some free time so I made this:
Ok thats all. Thanks for tuning in! I'll be back with more very soon :)
Well folks, it's that most wonderful time of the year again, and it just got a little bit better. My brother's girlfriend Emily came out to my art show / album release party last Saturday along with some friends and family and took some amazing photos! Check em out!

This was so fun. Thanks to Mind Unwind for letting me do this, Joel Goreman for playin some awesome tunes, Emily for taking such wonderful photos, Sawyer for filming the event, and everyone else who came out that night. I had a wonderful time and it wouldn't of been the same without all of you.
Here's a video I made of the event with the footage Sawyer shot, cut to the music of one of the tracks off of my new album: "Music Jason Makes". The song is called Traditional Medicinals, and it will be available on iTunes any day now.
Mind Unwind is rad. There's a lot of art there from many different artists, and THIS SATURDAY there's going to be a HUUUUGE sale on ALL of the art there so come on by and get your Christmas shopping done!!!!!

Later that week I went to Marginal Way skatepark and made this with the same filmer. I feel like this is my best work yet! At least as far as skateboarding goes. Barnteam Blackout comes in at a close second, but that's another story....
