Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jake Murray has been drawing and imagining fantastical things for as long as he can remember. Entangled with his obsession for drawing was also a love of story telling. Movies, video games, comics, and playing pretend were among his favorite childhood pastimes, and he still has notebooks from the first grade that are filled cover to cover with primitive scrawlings of Velociraptors, Sonic the Hedgehog, and X-Men.
After many years of training and loving support, Jake earned his BFA as an illustration major from the Columbus College of Art and Design. Since graduation, he has been working full-time as a professional illustrator for clients in the publishing, gaming, and advertising markets. He now lives with his fiance and their three parakeets in the German Village area of Columbus.
Jake strives to create the highest quality art in order to realize or exceed his clients’ vision, while also making every effort to keep the process as smooth and pleasant as possible.
