My name is Jackson Maness. I am a young artist, (Fifteen to be exact) and I have been doing art since I was around four or five. I started taking it seriously around 10 years old when I started making comics. I remember the name was Comic- X, and I wrote them all through 5th grade. I began to draw characters from my favorite shows/ video games later on, and thats when I decided to take part in Denver Zine Fest. Zine Fest allowed me to meet new artists, and get very inspired. I have been in DiNK once before in 2016, and wanted to last year, but school was really hitting me. I think I have grown a ton since then, and I really want to show the world my new art, and meet other artists, in and out of Denver. I have had a dream to become an entrepreneur, and design things for people. Just the feeling of someone telling me their amazing vision, and doing it perfectly for them puts a huge smile on my face. I have been doing that same thing for a friend who makes small skateboards, for only a few months now, and it just makes me so happy. I hope you consider me for the 2018 DiNK Exhibition. Thanks!
