Hello! My name is Jayson, aka Y. I am an artist, animator, marathoner and sometimes a musician. I have been working alongside these characters since 2003. I started drawing with a piece of charcoal taped to the end of a wire hanger. I didn’t have a plan as to what I would be sketching, but through this experiment birthed Y.
Soon I took the basic concept of Y and primarily used MS Paint to draw him. I invented more characters for him to interact with, most notably Blob. They evolved greatly throughout the years, and now I either hand draw them or I use a mouse in Photoshop. I recently got a Bamboo Tablet, so I’m thinking of taping my pen to the end of a wire hanger …
Every Christmas for the last three years, I have mailed postcards out to those who requested one. When 2011 rolled around, I decided to take upon a project: Every month, I will mail out postcards to everyone who wants one. Some are hand drawn, some were created in photoshop, some involved the participation of the recipient. Since 2011, I have mailed over 3,000 postcards!
If you would like to receive a postcard every month in 2013, you can sign up at my Etsy Shop.
It’s only $10! Whenever you sign up, that’s when your year starts.
