Hi I'm Jake!



  • First post, wooo!

    Ok, got that out of the way, so let me introduce myself.

    I'm an illustrator and a cartoonist who's been working professionally for over 16 years. I live in Utah, I'm happily married with 5 kids, a house, 2 cats and 7 chickens.

    The reason I'm here: I love what I do and I want to help other people be able to do it, too. That's why I helped make SVSlearn.com with a bunch of other talented people. The website isn't perfect (yet) but it's our best attempt at getting our ideas and theories on art and the craft of illustration out there. I hope you like my classes. More are coming!

    Here's my website: http://www.mrjakeparker.com

    Hope to see you around the forum!



  • Hi, Jake :)

    just a thank you. I love the website and your youtube videos and art of all the teaching artists. Great stuff, it gave me a kick to commit more time to drawing even though I lack the much needed time.

    Also, do you know Will Terrell (https://www.youtube.com/user/willterrell2001)? I found you and SVS because of him, so I should probably give him shoutout too :)



  • Hi Jake,

    I just love the you tube videos too, they are equal parts informative and funny! They crack me up, well done! And of course SVS rocks, so thanks for that too!
