JAFantasyArt


You can find Jessi Arntz and her staff all along the convention circuit where they run panels and judge costume contests. They have been featured in numerous publications including Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders. Their work has also been used in several film projects and webseries including Song of the Starslayer and Antideluvian.

At JAFantasyArt, they describe their work as ''Next Level Costuming.'' They are constantly trying new things with new materials and techniques to make their works more interesting and unique. They love combining illustration and leatherworking to create fantastical three dimensional images on wallets, book covers, play mats, and all other sorts of items.

If you have a great idea you can discuss it with JA Fantasy Art to turn your fantasy into reality!
