Born on Chicago’s West Side, Jesse Howard has returned to his old neighborhood to record images of the people there. The objective of his portraits is not simply to create a likeness, but to show the stress and pressure in the physical makeup of his subjects.

Howard received a Bachelor’s degree from Ball State University, with a major in commercial art and a minor in business administration. His work is featured in permanent collections such as the Evanston Art Center, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Rutgers University, and Chicago State University.

He has exhibited at numerous galleries and colleges throughout the Chicagoland area – to include the Elmhurst Art Museum Biennial and the Chicago Cultural Center. Recently, his work was awarded first place in the Beloit Vicinity Exhibition.

Project Fusion commission range: $1,000 to $10,000

  1. I’m still in love with your work! This is a great idea and I wish I could commission a portrait, but it’s not possible at this time. Good luck.
