   “I was born in Circleville, Ohio as a "Marine Brat" (both parents), so we eventually lived all over the east coast before we returned in 1994. I always managed to keep myself entertained with my sketchbook & the nearest TV. Ever since I was old enough to use a pencil, I've been creating images. After graduating from The Columbus College of Art & Design in 2005, I've been lucky enough to sustain freelance work. And yes, I am STILL horribly addicted to my sketchbook and TV.” - Jamie McLeese
