Hello all! Woefully, selfishly, I have been away from the forum for a while but... no but, I am just sorry to have had my head up my butt for so long.
I will be taking part in the portfolio reviews coming up, very excited by this! I think we are on our way to redefining peer awareness, never mind a realistic peak into the heads of people navigating the industry today. bring your best game, that is to say just your best work, and remember everyone starts at different places with confidence, knowledge and skill, the main point will be for you to listen and understand whether YOU have the passion to go further.
for those of you not familiar with my work I will post some images as well as a link to my site.

really mindblowing work here, awesome in every aspect!
can`t wait to get my portfolio reviewed by you and Carl oh yeah^^
Great to see you posting again Jon! Beautiful paintings, it's always a pleasure to see new work from you.
Good lord these are *incredible*!
Wonderous, sweeping compositions and outrageously cool design sense, execution and voice!
These have that dream-like quality thats so tough to tap into, so good!
I love coming here and getting my ass tanned by talent like this, thanks for posting!
ssssssigh...always, ALWAYS wonderful stuff.
Return of the King! Good to see you back Jon.
Stunning. The way you pick to tell the story is probably the least obvious option and it's brilliant. I'm not sure I could ever think up the illustrations that way on my own. That's what makes these so interesting. Well that and the fact that they're painted beautifully.
I've got your site bookmarked now so that I can pour over it and amp up my storytelling. Thanks!
"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams
My goal: To get good enough to post in the Finally Finished Forum.
Mr. Foster, your my idol, I think your one of the main reasons why I want to go to Ringling. I wish I could put you in my pocket and pull you out when I need and want to learn something new, that probadly sounds creepy but we are all artist, you can handle it.
Look, Iam diet drama, want to spend tha night dont bring pajamas, man there's so much heat beneath clothes, you see me !

Just beautiful stuff... I love the colours in your more recent work, particularly the one with the girl who's hair is caught up in the teeth of the big cat mask. What was that one for? Your subtle stylization of figures is wonderful.
I'd also be really interested to know which of these are digital or traditional media, or a mix of the two...?
(And it was great to meet you at IMC, your talk and demo were inspiring...)
so good to have you back baby. You've been sorely missed....
Welcome back, Jon. I want to be you when I grow up.
