Awake to a World Only He Seems to Understand.
Das Wortham Art
Jay Wortham’s biggest artistic influence has always been music even though he’s always viewed himself as an illustrator and writer. The biggest influence being the musician Prince. His music has always created images in his mind and since he’s not musically talented, he opted to put those images on paper.
Most of his training was in a high school program of the arts and then a theatrical design degree from a small liberal arts college in Missouri.
His digital style is very raw and driven by the music he listens to as he creates it. He dreams of worlds and let the music push the images into reality.
He’s had a number of small design opportunities but various realities in life have prevented him from making a career out of it yet.
His philosophy has always been to be true to himself but he’s always struggled with the standard artistic crisis of confidence that can hold any artist hostage for a time.
Now he’s chosen to take charge and choose his destiny for himself.
Now the push is on to get his voice out, his inspiration, Prince, passed on unexpectedly and that has sent him a very clear message that time is precious and shorter than any of us can hope. Time for him to be the artist he’s always dreamt he should be.
