RealFakeRapper Illustrates Instagram Models Through Microsoft Paint

Microsoft Paint was (and always will be) the OG digital art platform, so when I stumbled on this dude's art, I knew I wanted to know more about it.

Jake Jackson is an illustrator from Bowmanville, Ontario, his instagram is filled with colourful illustrations of influencers, hot people with a hint of vulgarity that is tastefully done.

I asked him to draw me, and he delivered right away: 

He primarily works in Microsoft Paint, picks a subject, and transforms their photo into an art piece that can be used for a multitude of products such as t-shirts, prints, and stickers to name a few. The idea behind this is to exploit the double-edged nature of fame, beauty, and ego to cultivate a vulgarity that is both eerie and captivating. 

Here are some examples:

His portraits invade the sterile, effortless allure of the Instagram models, celebrities, and selfies.

To be drawn by Jackson is to be seen. You can order your favourite prints directly on his website. You can also ask to be custom-drawn for a low fee and he'll make it happen very quickly.
