Thanks to one of my students, Jason Herr for introducing me to the work of Los Angeles artist/musician/illustrator Jason Holley, who teaches at the Art Center College of Design in Pasedena California. Holley's work is often made up of images painted on paper, cut out and collaged together. When a client returns an illustration to him he often peels his favorite images back off of it to re-use in personal work or other illustrations. For this reason, most of his illustrations survive only in reproduction. This history also contributes to the aged and 'dirty' quality of his work.
