Hi I’m Jess Hara. Since my early age I have also used the artist handle ‘saprophilous’ or ‘SAPRO’.
I’ve built my creative identity via archaic programs such as ms paint, oekaki bbs, and paintchat. I’m a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts holding my BFA focusing on Illustration. My abilities are versatile, and I have a dynamic recognizable style — ranging from technical realism to highly-stylized and dynamic.
I’m skilled in many traditional mediums, and tend to blend both digital and traditional into my projects.
My specialties are: comic cover illustration, character design/ concept Illustration & environments, sequential art, graphic illustration for branding/advertisement and apparel, children’s book illustration, & hand-drawn lettering.
