Jake Weidmann | an artist's life

I first met Jake during an art show we both displayed work at.  Proud of myself of the 9 landscape series I produced, everything nice and tidy.  In walks Jake, with a myriad of mixed medium art, caught everyone's eye.  An eclectic set of oils on canvas, calligraphy on vellum and carved bone and antler.  You name it Jake can make art out of it.  His work is incredible and people have wept just walking up to his pieces.  It wasn't until recently that I had the privilege of documenting his genius for a short film for Christianity Today.  We shot around all morning, talked philosophically about art and life; during the longer shots I seized the moment to break out the Fuji for some documentary style shots.  There are some of what was captured.   (jakeweidmann.com
