Caricaturist and humorist illustrator, Jason Seiler, studied fine art illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Professionally, his first client was his grade school principal who recognized his talent after he'd gotten in trouble for drawing parodies of his history teacher. She hired Jason to do caricatures of some faculty members and the rest is history! Today, Jason's client list includes such companies as MAD Magazine, GOLF Magazine, TIME, Universal Pictures, and New Line Cinema, among many others. Most recently, his image of Thom Yorke was one of only forty paintings selected by the Society of Illustrators to go on tour.

Jason believes that truth and humor are the two fundamental principles to any successful caricature: capturing the subject truthfully ensures recognition; doing so with a sense of humor ensures forgiveness. This is important because, in the words of George Bernard Shaw, "If you are going to tell people the truth, you'd better make them laugh. Otherwise they'll kill you." So far so good. :)

Jason currently lives in the Chicago area with his lovely wife, Kat, and his two irresistibly beautiful daughters, Isabeau and Ava. To see more of Jason's work, please visit his website, www.jasonseiler.com, and his blog, www.jasonseilerillustration.blogspot.com.
