One Amazing Mini-Matchbook Artist- Jason D’Aquino
While cruising the web recently I came upon a picture that had been drawn on the inside cover of a matchbook. This was no ordinary “doodle” as many of us have been known to do. No, this was like nothing I had seen before. This was pure, creative Art.
The Artist, Jason D’Aquino is a talented Miniaturist. In doing some research on who could draw such cleverly detailed things on a space so small, I found out he started his career drawing illustrations for Christian children’s books. Seems he has had a pencil in his hand, drawing, since he was a child.
Jason’s works have gained national attention and it’s no “small” wonder. The detail in each piece is remarkable and according to his website he has over 100 Matchbook drawings. I must add, he has the coolest looking website but one would expect nothing less from a person with his talents.
Jason is also a world renowned tattoo artist and owns a parlor in Buffalo, NY called Leviathan Tattoo. Ignition Publishing will soon be releasing a hardbound book of his creations, so be on the look out for something surely to become a collectors edition.
