Crafting stories through creative vision
Hello and welcome!
I’m Jake Murray, and as you’ve probably guessed, this is my art production studio. As a specialist in realist art and illustration, it is my life’s pursuit to tell engaging stories that impact and resonate emotionally with those who experience them. No matter the media - books, games, advertising, or even music - my singular goal is always to understand deeply the spirit of a project and to develop artistic assets that bring that understanding to consumers with impact.
Since 2009, I’ve worked with numerous clients in the print, advertising, and gaming industries, and I relish the storytelling challenges that come with every new project. In addition to collaborating one-on-one with private collectors, self-publishers, and other small businesses, I’ve also had the great fortune of working on a number of franchises that are dear to my heart. To contribute to these stories that are cherished by myself and so many others has been a true and unexpected blessing.
Though the focus of much of my illustration work has been toward science fiction and fantasy, I enjoy working in just about any genre.
So if you’ve got an amazing story that needs to be told, I’d love to help you bring it to life!
