Born 1964, childhood and youth in Salzburg
Studied painting and graphic design at the University of Applied Arts Vienna
Freelance painter and illustrator since 1994
During the time of his studies already, Jakob learned the handicraft knacks necessary for performing digital jobs in highest quality. Jakob worked for renowned customers on the Paint-Box, which was the most sophisticated machine for image processing back then.
After his studies, he became a freelancer, whereby in the beginning, advertising art and digital image processing took up much space. Just during the course of the years, illustration became more and more important and thus painting too (again).
