Jason William Christman has a minimalist and vintage style that is inspired by any number of searingly sci-fi, unapologetically geeky pop-culture touchstones, from Star Wars to Saul Bass. Born in 1971 he was raised in Oregon and in the late 80′s moved to Southern California and became a photography major and darkroom guru who realized the potential of the digital world when Photoshop came to be. In the 90′s he was mentored by LightWorks Productions photographer and owner Richard Mclean. In 1998 Jason set off to become a successful freelancing Creative Director getting gigs with some of the west coast’s best advertising agencies, publications and companies. At the same time he opened a gallery in the Pomona Arts Colony where he could share some of his favorite art, music and movies with everyone he could.
By 2005 he moved back to Oregon to raise a family with his wife Jenny, and children Kaileigh and Kaiden. Currently he is co-founder and creative director of Blue Couch Media based out of Portland Oregon.
His first licensed LucasFilm Star Wars print was released in 2012 and has since done dozens of limited edition licensed prints and series, plus exclusive prints for Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, 2016 in London and 2017 in Orlando. His latest work has been expanding into other sci-fi and pop-cultured icons like Firefly, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and more.
