Writer. Illustrator. Producer.
Jerome J. Jackson has been doing all three for decades. As a child growing up in Charlotte County, VA, he became known in his family, school, and community as an artist, able to pencil life onto paper with a creative touch. Winning numerous awards in his county and region, the expressive teenager had a love for comics, movies, and Hip Hop.
While in high school, he even wrote and costarred in a play for his Drama class and was also on the Forensic team. After graduating, he attended Virginia Commonwealth University and majored in Communication Arts and Design while minoring in film. He has written numerous screenplays, including the short films Broken Mirror, Body Shop, and A Thirst for Life. He was also a Producer, Editor, and Co-Casting Director on those same three projects.
Jerome believes that artist should have a platform to present their work and to connect with others. He created Taleville with his longtime friend, Antoine Evans to express their creativity while also encouraging other expressionist to connect and hone their own crafts.
Always keeping his eyes on the prize, Jerome continues to work on short films for Taleville and a creating a graphic novel that expands on his visionary pursuits.
