Have you seen our new Jason Patton Sticker?
Has Jason Patton ever looked so good?
That’s all thanks to the artistic powers of Paul Combs, a retired officer in the fire service and an extraordinary illustrator and cartoonist. He’s earned a nationwide reputation for using “the power of the pen” to shine a humorous and often satirical light on social and cultural issues, especially those involving firefighters and other first responders.
Shining a light on Fire Dept. Coffee’s Vice President, Jason Patton is no small feat, given the glare reflecting from his perfectly polished head. But Paul absolutely nailed it.
That’s right. Now you can slap Jason Patton — in sticker form, of course — on your helmet, your window or your wall. You can even slap his grinning mug on your coffee mug.
Paul’s portrait of an oversized Jason riding an undersized firetruck is flawless. From the mischievous smile that is always on his face to the death grip that he keeps on his coffee mug, it’s all perfect.
Just when you thought Jason couldn’t get any more animated, Paul goes and exceeds all expectations. We knew he would do a great job, but even we were blown away by how awesome this sticker is.
If this is your first introduction to the incredible work of Paul Combs, consider yourself in for a treat.
Want to see more of Paul’s genius at work? Look no further than his website.
This is where he shares his art for the world to see, and he often lifts the curtain to let you in on his thought process and his drawing process in his blog. His subjects range from simply hysterical to deeply insightful.
If you’re a first responder, you’re going to appreciate this unique blend of immense creative talent with the in-depth experience and perspectives that only a career firefighter can deliver.
So why does he do what he does?
As he says on his website, it’s his “sincere hope that through art we can accomplish our goals of better human interactivity, effective leadership, a more rewarding career, and safety on the job.”
At Fire Dept. Coffee, we are huge fans of his work and his mission. We hope you’ll check him out, too.
