Jon Carling | Artist Profile


Lost in Novalesa, 2013.

Jon Carling is an artist currently living and working in Oakland, California. His fine line sketches and drawings offer a peak into a highly imaginative world, filled with hybrid creatures and fantastic beings. His images recall illustrations found in early 19th century publications, and most of his works are created with pen and pencil and a minimal use of color. Ranging from whimsical illustrations to more emotionally charged images, Carling’s work is instantly intriguing. In addition to created sketches and drawings, Carling has also completed animated works, multimedia projections, and posters. He has also contributed album artwork for The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Entrance Band, Noceans, Magic Castles, and more.

For Carling, Oakland is a rich environment for artists. In addition to several opportunities to exhibit art throughout the city, there are several artists living and working in the areas, lending to a rich cultural experience that fuels artistic creativity. Jon Carling earned his degree in illustration from Oakland’s California College of the Arts. His work has been shown in group and solo exhibits throughout the United States and Italy. This November, Carling’s work will be shown at the Rock Paper Scissors Collective in Oakland. For a gallery of his sketches, as well as his animated videos and album art, visit his website.
