Jason Brooks grew up in Brighton, England. He took an M.A. in Illustration at the Royal College of Art. Afterwards, he began to get work as a fashion illustrator on the strength of his travel sketchbooks from journeys through Europe and Central America. He produced illustrated reports for the Independent Newspaper from the Couture Shows in Paris as well as shows in New York for Visionaire and Max. He lives in London, where he produces images using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, and is widely credited with being one of the key initiators of the boom in computer lead fashion drawing.
