Jacob van Loon
My name is Jacob, I’m 26, living in Chicago. I listen to a lot of punk, played drums since I was 18 but have never owned a kit, have a hard time saying no to Korean food, or the chance to pet a cat. I’m weirdly inspired by Midwestern America, but love to see anything new.
All my work carries a strong Design sensibility, focusing on the synthesis of digital and traditional media to complete a visual idea.
He explains his work by saying, “Observing how closely people curate their own histories with the advent of social networking, My work is influenced the inherent self-awareness people have historically maintained. I am inspired by the impact of our collective, cautious approach to impression by what we choose to show, and what we try to hide.”
