The Illustrations of Jason Raish

October 31, 2012

I was born in Seoul, South Korea and came to the U.S. at the age of 3. After being raised in the forests of upstate New York I studied Fine Arts for 2 years at SUNY Albany. Then 1 year studying abroad at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea for a year. Then I started over at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) where I received my bachelors in Illustration. I'm into kung fu, low brow art, traveling in Asia, collecting Asian cultural things, cooking, jazz, and drawing funny pictures. I secretly wish I could switch my drawing talent for Jazz piano talent, or to be able to wail like Al Green. —Jason Raish
