Hello my name is Jon Foster. I live in Rhode Island, work out of my house, share the studio with two dogs and can not imagine anything better! The art work I make a living at encompasses everything from Sci Fy Fantasy book covers to National Geographic interiors to story boards and concept work in games and film. As well as being lucky enough to win several awards for my cover work I have also been given the opportunity to publish two compilations of my art, the first being Progressions: The Art of Jon Foster and the second Revolution: The Art of Jon Foster. While I have been working as an illustrator for over fifteen years I have also been teaching, both at Rhode Island School of Design and The Illustration Academy. The latter opened my eyes to how an art education should be presented both in content, tutorage and passion. The Art Department is a melding of Conceptart.orgs community and and the Illustration Academies educational knowledge. It creates a new and exciting form or art education, one in which I am greatly jealous that I did not have a chance to partake in when a student but also very proud to be part of as Faculty.
