Illustrator and Concept Artist
San Jose, CA
My name is Nowell, but I go by Jet. How I got the name Jet? I was told that when I was little that once I took off, there was no stopping. It's kind of funny but I guess, in a lot of ways, it also describes my passion for art and my creativity.
I love to show a story through my characters, environment, and props. I think it is very powerful to convey a story or a message without using words but only through visual images.
I am a graduate of The Arts Institute of Silicon Valley receiving my Bachelors of Science in Media Arts and Animation. I have a strong passion for art and love to create different styles and genres of characters, environments and props. I can’t imagine doing anything else other than art and everything around it. I am also a father of four boys which keep me young and they definitely help with the creativity.
