Taylor Jackson (they/them) is a queer nonbinary artist based in Houston, Texas who loves communicating through personal illustrated portraits, 2D Animation, and Graphic Design. The mediums they choose to work with are; digital and traditional (pastel, pencil, colored pencil, and acrylic paint). Taylor has been a digital artist for over 5 years and a traditional artist for their entire life. They first came across digital art and all its awesome possibilities when introduced to digital drawing tablets and GIMP software in high school via a friend. Taylor’s first drawing tablet was Sketchbook Pro on an old Android phone. It was very cramped. They didn’t use GIMP as much but immediately fell in love with Sketchbook Pro.
The self-taught artist did not attend art classes until college age and learned mostly everything online through websites like drawsketch.about.com (now liveabout.com) and YouTube. Up until pursuing digital art, Taylor had been doing traditional work. They attended Sam Houston State University and Houston Community College with an initial focus on criminology and studio art/graphic design. Now, Taylor’s focus has come full circle on finding different ways to educate themself. Taylor has since then done work for organizations such as Houston Community College and Out of the Margins.
WHAT I’M ABOUT
My work focuses on gender identity and racial representation through fan art and original work. I strive to use art as a therapeutic way to process my emotions and understand the world around me. I am gender-queer and underrepresented as a Black genderqueer person and artist. It is important to have diverse voices challenging the “status quo”. I am mostly self-taught. I did not attend art classes until college age and learned mostly everything online through websites like drawsketch.about.com (now liveabout.com) and YouTube. I became aware of digital art in high school when a friend showed me her digital work on DeviantArt. Up until that point, I had been doing traditional work. That is when I was introduced to GIMP and Sketchbook Pro. I didn’t use GIMP as much but immediately fell in love with Sketchbook Pro. I attended Sam Houston State University and Houston Community College with an initial focus on criminology and studio art/graphic design. Now, my focus has come full circle on finding different ways to educate myself. There are a ton more resources online now than there were in the mid-2000s, and often they are more cost-friendly than college. My background which started with limited resources inspired me to create work centered around mental health and accessibility; My goal is to provide low-cost or free resources to artists who are just trying to learn like me.
