His two pieces go well together. “Before the Race 1” and “Before the Race 2” -- the subjects are a tortoise and a hare -- are handsomely executed as well as delightfully playful.”

Jason also had a small print accepted for the 7th Biennial International Miniature Print Competition, which ran from May 28 to August 15, 2009. Held at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Connecticut, this juried exhibition is limited to works that are no more than four square inches and aims to encourage artists to explore the miniature print format.
