about Jay:At a young age, Jay Stuart found himself drawing things from out of his mind inspired by the depths of his imagination. As he got older, he began studies at Hoftsra art classes for the young and then attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC studying illustration and cartooning. From then he has worked for various art jobs from comics to fashion design. His work is mainly illustrations with india ink and brush which he finds the perfect medium to translate his macabre ideas into reality. He also extends his illustration in oil and acrylic paints bringing to his audience a set of imagery that only he can explain. Jay Stuart has now started Poppycock Productions which produces various products like storybooks, tarot cards and comic books while also producing gallery art for the Long Island Art community to enjoy.
