I'm Jake Parker

I'm an illustrator, writer, and teacher based in Utah. Since 1999 I've worked on everything from animated films to comics to picture books. I've lived in six states, working at the best studios with the most amazing and talented people in the country. Now I freelance out of my studio in Provo Utah.
