Hello there, my name is Jay P Cudahy! I usually go by a variation of “JAWS-of-INK” on social media outlets. Sadly since I terminated my previous account with that exact user name I now cannot reuse it on RedBubble. Given these circumstances I decided to try out another name. I think it summarizes my designs quite well in my opinion!

I was born and raised in the east end suburbs of Ottawa, ON. While most my neighbours were outside playing I was inside always creating something. From paintings to sculptures, I loved hands on crafts. My thankfully supportive parents helped me grow as an artist enrolling in me in art classes since I was 10 years old.

I started my High School education at St. Peter’s Catholic High School. While attending grade 8 there I auditioned for Canterbury High School’s Visual Arts program. It took two tries before I was accepted into the specialized program. I graduated from Canterbury’s Visual Arts program in 2016 but I did not receive my visual arts certificate, a mural space, or spot in the graduation show case. This was due to being academically in grade 12 but only in grade 11 of the visual arts program. Despite this I went on to attend Algonquin College with the goal of being a professional Animator. I graduated with honours from Algonquin’s Pre-Animation and Illustration program in 2017. As I took a blind running leap into Algonquin’s three year Animation program, I realized I was not fit for this type of career. I ended up dropping out before finishing the first year. Luckily, I did not give up hope! I’m currently enrolled in Algonquin’s Concept Art Foundations program (winter 2019-Spring 2019).
I am only moving forward from there!

I’m sure you have seen for yourself but my art usually focuses around animals, specifically wolves/canines. I enjoy exaggerating and pushing my character designs to stay true to my own cartoony style. I also like drawing anthropomorphic creatures (can include furries), monsters, and cartoon fan art under RedBubble’s partnership program.
If you’d like a specific commission you can contact me through my business e-mail: jawsofink@hotmail.com
