His work in comics quickly segued to contracts worldwide with a variety of companies: Topps Trading Cards, White Wolf, Xbox, Playstation, Disney, Hasbro, Ziff-Davis, IGN and various others. Jason's artwork has even been featured in movies! Examples include Kevin Smith's Mallrats and Universal Pictures Paul starring Simon Pegg.

His artwork has been featured in Official U.S. Playstation Magazine, PSM, Play Magazine, Polyhedron, Computer Gaming World, Undefeated, Super Street, Grassroots Motorsports, and Wizard. This caught the eye of an even broader audience, and Jason began designing toys, plushies, various merchandise, logos and character art for corporations around the globe.
