We are thrilled to welcome Jason Eckhardt as our Artist Guest of Honor at Necon 38.
We hope you enjoy the following collection of samples from his portfolio. As you can see, Jason Eckhardt is an artist who works across both various styles and mediums, including editorial cartoons. We cannot wait to display his work in our art show this summer.
Jason C. Eckhardt is a self-taught artist who had the foresight to be born into an artistic family. At age twelve he decided to become an illustrator after reading Norse Gods and Giants by the d’Aulaires. Other favorite illustrators include Howard Pyle and Arhtur Rackham. Eckhardt’s work can be found in publications from Dell Magazines and Hippocampus Press, among others.

Angel Oak, in South Carolina. A pastel I did last year of the most amazing tree on the East Coast. Over 1,500 years old, its branches spread like the vault of heaven.
