In addition to the fine work in the fields of web & motion, there's a lot more going on at JPFive! Check back to this page from time to time to see what that might be... I imagine some of it will be business-related, but mostly just fun stuff: painting, photography, illustration... music? Who knows!!! (Well, you will... if you pay attention.)

check out the work! ยป

Odds and Ends:


by JPFive on 10.19.14

A few years ago I had the great fortune to stumble upon the largest flock of birds I've ever seen... and I had a camera with me. That day left an indelible mark on me, and has since been an endless source of creative inspiration. Sadly, a series of hard drive failures has stripped me of just about all of the 300+ photos I took that day, but a few have survived in one form or another.

Recently, I've been singling birds out of the flock images I took, and putting them to oil... yep, lovely, large oil paints. The first image below is a photo from that fateful day, just to give you an idea of the numbers we're talking about here... The second image is one of the paintings I'm currently working on. 36" x 36" - oil on canvas.

Once they properly dry, I'm hoping to make prints out of them in various sizes. Drop me a line if you're interested!

The Grandpa Project

by JPFive on 10.17.14

Earlier this year, I created these two scratchboard illustrations of my 2 grandfathers. Immensely rewarding experience to revisit and become familiar with these faces I haven't seen in a long, long time.

Super high quality Giclee prints were made for close family members.

It's been suggested that I consider doing this sort of thing on commission and I'm batting the idea around... we shall see.
