Who doesn’t love doodling? Just scribbling some lines down on the side of a piece of notebook paper or napkin is where some of our best ideas originate. The beauty of doodling is that the medium in which you choose is typically anything but a sketch pad, so there’s no pressure. Jason D’Aquino takes his doodling a bit beyond this.
Jason D’Aquino is a miniaturist. He creates his work on a scale that many wouldn’t even consider doodling on. Much of his work does not exceed one inch by one inch in dimension, and most of which are now being seen on matchbooks.
Jason’s influences include H.P. Lovecraft, Henry Darger and Hans Bellmer. His drawings, often political in nature, have graced the pages of the New York Times, Juxtapoz, I.T.A., The Stranger, and Gulliver Magazine. A hardbound volume of his work is forthcoming, soon to be released by Ignition Publishing.
