Jason Chalker

 

Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently

 

I was born in Abilene, TX USA in 1968. I currently live in Dallas, TX

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures

 

I always like drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon, but Star Wars came out when I was in third grade and that really got my imagination fired up and things really got rolling.

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding

 

Tony Hawk. The guy really is pretty damn incredible. My only ties to skateboarding would be the skateboard I had when I was 8 or 9 in '77. I was never very good, but I loved that thing.

 

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

Tough question. I love pin-up art and my favorite pin-up artist hands-down is Gil Elvgren. So, I'll go with that.

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing

 

Traveling with my wife, spending time with my family and eating really good food.

 

Who are your biggest influences

 

The Hildebrandt Brothers, Ralph MacQuarrie and the pulp and pin-up illustrators from the 40's-60's.

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

Acrylic, Ink and Clay/Resin

 

Anything else you want to tell?

 

Not really. Thanks for having me in the show!
