Jay Hornsby has always been fascinated with art. All through his life he would doodle sketches on scrap pieces of paper, school work, notes, and even today the habit continues. That’s why almost 11 years ago Jay created the Belligerent Monkey. His moniker that allows him to stay creative and keep in touch with his artistic roots. I got to hang out with Jay as he worked on a few different pieces getting ready for his next show. Surrounded by his inspiration, Star Wars figures and other awesome collectables adorn the shelves in his workspace at his home in East Atlanta Village. Jay creates what I would call pop art and it speaks to me. I first met him at an Indie Craft Experience show in downtown a few years ago and his work popped out at me so much that I found myself passing by his booth over and over again to make sure that I saw everything he had on display. So if you like art festivals I would definitely keep my out for Jay!
