When Jon was in 3rd grade, he drew avant-garde renditions of his favorite cartoon characters and sold 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 teacher found out and shut the whole thing down for good.

Now Jon shares his weird ideas at ad agencies, where the budgets are bigger 

(sometimes) and the clients less miniature.

 

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.
