Hello, Jason Snyder here. I’m an artist in Orlando, Florida. By day, I’m a mild-mannered user interface designer. By night, I strap on my jetpack and battle villains!
Wait… that’s a lie. At least the part about battling villains.
I’m a vintage pop-culture fan, interested in old movies, retro sci-fi, drive-in movie theaters, tiki bars, pinup girls, neon signs, retail archaeology, and Googie-Futurism.
Most of my art is digital, created using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I don’t use 3D rendering software in any of my final art, though on occasion I’ll use Daz Studio 3D and Sketchup as references to pose a scene. I also paint in acrylics. I’ll work on canvas or wood board and occasionally bare walls, if given the opportunity. I also use oils from time to time, but only when I’m painting along with Bob Ross. Bob Ross painting is therapeutic after a stressful day.
I used to operate Toyshopgreetings.com. That was my primary blog, where I posted about my other obscure retro interests. In October 2013, I transferred all of that content to this site. It was time to have a site with a more identifiable name, where people interested in my art could find me.
I’ve operated a number of other websites over the past 18 years, including atomicmartiniproductions.com and remagine.com. Both of those domains are in other people’s hands now. I was also a founding member of the online Disney community, Triple Dub Club Cyberneighborhood.
