When Jon was in 3rd grade, he liked to draw avant-garde renditions of his favorite cartoon characters and sell them to his classmates for $5 a piece.

9-year-old Jon quickly made plans to drop out of school and live off his art full-time. Unfortunately, his principal found out and shut the whole thing down for good.

Now Jon sells his ideas to adults at ad agencies, instead of grade school children with questionable taste.

 

If you'd like to hear more about his elementary school art operation, or just tell him to stop writing in the third-person, send him an email at jgruber93@gmail.com.
