About the Instructor
Jared Boggess grew up on a heavy diet of comic books and animated films. Thus a deep love for drawing and visual storytelling was born. He went on to earn a degree in Communication Arts at VCU in 2010 and attend the Illustration Academy. He has illustrated for national and local clients like Richmond Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine and Simon & Schuster. His work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, Print Magazine, AIGA and others. Nowadays if he's not busy with a commission, he is cooking up a new story about finding beauty amidst the brokenness of life.See More Classes By Instructor
