JONBOB (jonthan robert willis) is a recovering punk rocker and a father of three. He received the better end of the deal when he married his beautiful and gracious wife. He jumps from city to city and country to country—wandering down stories, building makeshift studios, and hunting dynamic life in dynamic light. Patient but direct when in the studio or field, Jonathan’s got a trademark style of juxtaposing the ordinary with the offbeat and a reputation for being super down-to-earth and a born (humble) creative.

Find parameters to force creativity. Its with a looking-glass take on time and good judgment, he sets him apart
