About Me

Jae Johns

Hello Fellow Art Believers!

Jae here. I’m a devoted husband and artist who left my nearly 6-figure corporate job because I wanted more freedom to spend with my family.

Like many artists and creators, I wanted to be fulfilled by the content I create.

During my twenties, I discovered my love of teaching and years later decided to combine my years of web and design experience with my passion to teach other artists. 

In under a year, I have gained a loyal and engaged audience that has reached over 1 million views.

How Jae Johns Began

Around 2014, I started to learn more about the world of blogging and the importance of building an audience.

At this time, I already had years of experience in making websites.

Most importantly, I developed skills to make sites for companies and refined my skills in how to drive traffic to these sites.

As my knowledge of search engine optimization grew, I thought I could combine this with my desire to help artists. 

For more than 20 years I have been doing illustration work and paintings. I formed an art studio with art colleagues and showcased my work at conventions around the nation.

After lots of support from my wife, we decided on a plan where I developed this site you’re scrolling through as a blogging platform to help artists strengthen their skills. 

What Will You Find Here?

This is a place where artists and creators can strengthen their creative skills without potentially going into debt from educational institutions. 

You will find lots of content to help you draw, paint, and many other creative categories. 

How Jae Johns Built a Thriving Art Community

Since launching the blog, my work has been featured in several reputable interviews, has done collaborations with other artists, created a live show with Amazon, and won several Google performance awards.

I have sent out over 1 million emails to my newsletter community that helps artists and creatives deepen their

Additionally, I have been a guest speaker at various podcasts and interviews, where I have shared my insights on creativity, art techniques, and digital tools for artists.

Furthermore, I have collaborated with well-known artists and experts in the field, who have endorsed my content and praised the value it brings to the artistic community.

By working closely with these established figures, I have deepened my understanding of the industry and honed my skills in creating content that is both informative and engaging.

To maintain a high level of authoritativeness, I continuously update my knowledge and skills by attending workshops, taking online courses, and staying informed on the latest trends and developments in the world of art and design.

This dedication ensures that the content on my blog remains fresh, relevant, and valuable to artists and creators seeking to improve their skills and grow in their craft.

Hi! Your free email course is really helpful! I loved it. Hoping your course will help me improve my skills.



I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I appreciate what you’re doing. Even though I have not yet taken a course from you, your website is beautifully curated with actually USEFUL resources and tips. It’s one thing to have an artist post “helpful” articles on their website, but yours is very professional, thorough, and well thought out. You have a lot to be proud of. Your contributions to the art community, especially beginners and students, are very much appreciated, and I always recommend you to my peers.

Take good care, and don’t stop what you’re doing. You make a lot of fellow artists happy. 


Your newsletters have always been a great source of inspiration for me.


Thank you for supporting artists and help us be better, the mails that you send were useful and a reminder to practice more :))
