Welcome! I’m Jack Park, and I am the guy behind Jacky Paper Studios.
I am available for commission, and prints of my work are available for sale.
You can reach me at Jackypaperstudios@gmail.com
I graduated with a BFA in Communication Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University, an institution that never misses an opportunity to remind you that it is the number one public arts school in the country. I am primarily a cartoonist, but to varying degrees I am an illustrator, writer, poet, sculptor, and all-around storyteller.
My origin story: I was raised by incredibly, abnormally literate parents, in a house brimming with books, comics, scripts of plays, so on and so forth. I was always surrounded and fed by smart, compelling stories. But one of the very first stories I remember learning was not in a book, but in a song my father sang to me as a lullaby: Puff the Magic Dragon.
It is from the little boy in that song (little Jackie Paper) that Jacky Paper Studios gets its name– as a tribute to my crazy artsy bookworm parents, to the stories I grew up on, and to little boys who play with dragons.

I absolutely adore you self portrait, it’s fantastic. I have to admit that Dungeon Master’s Apprentice has to be my favourite of your posts however, just that last panel in the middle section! It really made me chuckle.
Aw, thanks! :)
Hello, Jack, you have a post up on ‘strata of the self’:
