Jay Fleck

Jay Fleck is a Shorewood, IL based illustrator and author. His artwork is bold and imaginative, featuring whimsical animal pairings, images of faraway lands and fantasy playgrounds, or just beautiful compositions of color and shape. He is inspired by old memories from childhood along with new experiences with his two young children.

He drew a lot as a child but grew up to pursue other things, like a degree in computer engineering. After submitting several T-shirt designs to Threadless.com however, he got hooked on art and illustration. His artwork has been selected for print at Threadless.com, has been featured on products at the GAP, Papyrus, on the front page of Society6.com, FAB.com along with a number of other brick and mortar and internet stores.

He lives with his family south of Chicago, which he believes is the best city in the world. (Just ask him about the hotdogs!) He spends his spare time running and reading (but not at the same time).
