Highlighting Creatives – Jarvis Taylor

By SALTY Admin

Posted in , | Tags : , ,

Each month, we pick a Christian Creative to share their #FiveFaves with us in the below categories – here were Jarvis’s top picks (also known as @JMaurice on Instagram):


1) Favorite app or tool for your art?

Photoshop and Illustrator.


2) Favorite book or blog you frequent?

  • Fifty Reasons Why Christ Came to Die by John Piper
  • Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer
  • The Jealousy of God by Erik Thoennes
  • The Strong Name by James Stewart


3) Favorite mentor or influencer who pushes your creativity?

My best friends Willie B who is a producer, and Hafid Roserie who is an Art Director at EA Games. A number of friends from art school and an art teacher I had by the name of Rick Reese. That dude always pushed me in class and would call me out if I was slacking off.

4) Favorite song or album while working?

The following artists for sure:

  • Hawk House
  • Eshon Burgundy
  • JGivens
  • Gemstones
  • Beautiful Eulogy
  • Kidd’s last album Hippsavvy
  • Ichiban:Live from Manhattan
  • Selah the Corner
  • Soulection Radio
  • DJ Aktual
  • J Dilla
  • Madlib
  • The Internet


5) Favorite quote or advice you’ve ever received?

My favorite quote would have to be by my grandfather Pastor B.T. Newman. He would humbly say, “All that I have God gave me, all that I am God made me, and all that I know God taught me.”


More About Jarvis Taylor:

I’ve been drawing pretty much my whole life. I used to sit with my dad in church when I was a little child and he would always whip out a pen and some paper and teach me how to draw.  In 2008 I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a B.F.A. in Illustration. I currently work as an in-house artist for a clothing company here in Los Angeles. At this point of my life I would have to say my favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 10:31 where Paul says “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” And that’s what I try to do with my art, glorify God.
