Dream Surfer Studios was created by Jason Paul Shasteen.  I am a DFW-based Illustrator and Cartoonist,  I’ve also been a graphic designer for over a decade now.  I left my illustration job in 2011 to build a successful business with my wife that has allowed me to further pursue my own art and creative interests as well as help our 2 boys with their own creative projects too.  My oldest son has already produced over 60 videos on his youtube channel BookDogGaming.

I’ve been illustrating since I could hold a pencil and cartooning and comics have become a renewed passion of mine.  Over the past few years I have even rediscovered a love for videogames and an unexpected interest in gaming history and the retro gaming community.

Of course, not everything I create is a one man job.  I have an amazingly creative wife and 2 amazing boys to keep our studio full of fresh ideas and new sources of inspiration.  If I’m not working on a project then I’m usually spending time having fun with my family going to amusement parks, lego events, movies or just playing games :)
