Jake Parker, also known as Agent 44, is a comics short-story creator, concept artist, illustrator, and animator. In 2009 Parker started Inktober, a popular annual celebration of ink drawing during the month of October. In 2014's Inktober, over 100,000 inked images were tagged on twitter by participating artists. In 2014 he started an "Art Drop Day" on September 6th to encourage artists to connect with others in a physical way.
Parker is also the cofounder and contributor to the illustration education website, Society of Visual Storytelling. He started this company in 2013 as a series of live online classes, and now offers subscriptions to his recorded classes.
Parker worked on animation at large studios, and contributed to the movie Titan A.E., Rio and Horton Hears a Who. He contributed stories for three of the volumes of Flight. His comic "Robot and the Sparrow" was influenced by Calvin and Hobbes.
His son, Tate Parker, also draws comics.
