Jake Kelly is a Cleveland, OH, based comic and concert artist. One of many rock artists in the area, he is prominently known for his really great concert fliers, promoting upcoming shows at venues around town. Last year, he completed a collaborative project titled 10 Imaginary Movies, where he created fake movie posters with local artist John G. He has also created murals for a number of area locations including The Grog Shop, Melt Bar and Grilled, and the Arts Collinwood Community Center.

On the side, he maintains a blog titled Little Brown Mugs With Wooden Handles.

Well, I'm more of a Derek Hess or Clay Parker kind of guy than a Jake Kelly guy, but then, I'm an Old.

Speaking of which, it's only the last picture (#10) in the Grog Shop link that's Jake's work - the other mural (#7) is Clay.

I also like Clays work, but I never knew his first name until now. The fliers of his I have are only signed "Parker" or "C.M.P.", and he doesn't have much online (likely due to the shows being from upwards of 20 years ago).
