Community Focus: JackDrawss

This week, our focus is a community artist from the UK. He’s created some amazing Destiny-themed art in the form of fan posters, retro comic book covers, and more! We invited him to share a little bit about the artist behind the brush, or tablet in some cases. Please meet JackDrawss. 

Let’s get down to business. Who is the infamous JackDrawss? Tell us about yourself and your journey as a Guardian in the real world.

Jack: So my name is Jack and I live in London, UK. I’m in my second year of college doing film and television studies, however I’ve always loved drawing as a hobby. In October of last year, after Shadowkeep dropped, I drew a fan poster for the release. I also made some for Destiny2’s launch and for Forsaken. I then decided to post it to Twitter under a newly made account, JackDrawss (I wanted to call it JackDraws but that was taken lol). Now I love posting and drawing for the Destiny community every day.

That is a fine looking fan poster. Tell us more about your Guardian. What class and subclass do you enjoy playing as?

Jack: So I’m very much a casual player, but I main a Titan and have done since Destiny 1 vanilla. I usually use the Sunbreaker (Code of the Devastator) subclass, I just love using that long-range melee!

Titans a fine choice and pretty universally agreed upon as the second best class. What’s your favorite weapon to arm your Titan with?

Jack: It's hard to say but I think Ace of Spades or my Masterworked Hammerhead may be my favourite guns in all of Destiny. They just feel so satisfying to use and I especially love the Ace for its background story. Rest in peace Cayde-6. :(

We all miss him. Now that we’ve gotten to know you a little bit, tell us about your art. Your comic style pieces are awesome!

Jack: So I’ve been drawing since I was very young, I did art in secondary school but it didn’t sit well with me, so I didn’t draw or paint properly for a year until I moved to digital and invested in a Wacom tablet. I love using my tablet and in the couple years I’ve had it, I’ve made some of my favourite pieces to date. In fact, I’m still using the same old tablet and laptop today! I also love drawing Destiny art and last month I had the idea to merge the retro comic style from the 50s and 60s with Destiny’s incredible characters. This was a hit with the community and I’m so grateful for the love they received.

Love the collision of styles with these comics! Where can players go to find your work online?

Jack: People can find me on Twitter under @jackdrawss and on Instagram under @_jackdrawss

Any final words before we go?

Jack: I want to thank everyone who’s supported me and my art. I only started a few months ago but everyone has been so kind and supportive of my work. I will continue to make art for all of you! 

Thankyou. <3

We’d like to thank Jack for taking time away from his art to chat with us. Go check out his work on Twitter and Instagram.

We’re always on the hunt for our next community member to focus on. If you have someone in mind, let us know on Twitter or our forums.
