Biography of a Freelance Artist: Jacob Ochoa

Two hobgoblins and a goblin sorcerer by Jake Ochoa

Jake Ochoa: Artist Biography

I’ve always been interested in art and growing up I was really lucky that I stumbled across some fairly high level drawing resources at a young age.

When I attended the Kubert school I was really surprised to find that I was coming in with a decently strong skill set. Of course I wasn't perfect, but, the guidance of the instructors helped cement allot of the stuff I had picked up on my own. Toward the end of my second year at the Kubert school I left wanting to work on my own projects.

Currently I'm developing a few different comic book series and preparing to release them in a series of anthological books online.

Something I hear a lot, is that I have a ’retro’ style. When I first heard that it was new to me, I was just trying to make my work look cool. I think the retro aesthetic comes out because most of what I think is cool, and a lot of what I get excited about seeing, is pretty old. Comics from thirty, forty, fifty, years ago, and even older, have this gruffness to them. Its like and extra layer of grit that you don't see too much any more.

Unfortunately I’m not on many portfolio sites but if you're interested in seeing more of my work you can check out my face book ( ) or my instagram@ocho_studio ). If you'd like a commission they’re always available and I can do something for any price range so feel free to shoot me an email

His work can be found in the following titles from Sinopa Publishing:

Tarot Adventures, Book Two: Comet over Echo Rock

From the Founder:

Jake came very well recommended, from artists I was already working with.  His art samples were particularly intriguing, showing a depth for character illustration that is truly remarkable. To date Jake has completed four illustrations for a role-playing adventure book coming out in 2017 (titled: Tarot Adventures, Book Two: Comet over Echo Rock).  The illustrations he did were done precisely to specifications, demonstrated a firm grasp of the scene being conveyed, and were completed in a timely manner.

Jake is reliable.

If you need art done on schedule, then you should look into working with Jacob Ochoa.  I did and I'm glad I was able to do so.  I look forward to opportunities to work with Jake in the future.
