Wonderful Illustrations by Jesse Lefkowitz


Jesse Lefkowitz was born and raised in the hills of rural Virginia. His first choice of vocation was that of cowboy/frontiersman but, in 2001, he put those dreams aside to attend the Rhode Island School of Design.

Upon graduating, Jesse found employment in the illustration business as a gun-for-hire and he has finally taken that long, dusty trail out West. He now lives and works in Berkeley, California.
