Interview: Jason Richardson – 2014 Philly Geek of the Year Winner

Comics, Cons, and Cosplay…Oh My!

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit and chat with the recent Philadelphia Geek Awards – Geek of the Year winner Jason Richardson.

If you’ve spent some time on South Street, you’ve either seen, met, or had the pleasure of hanging out with Jason. He is a strong community builder and entrepreneur creating J1 Studios, J1 Con – Philly’s premier Anime Convention, and the Cosplay Prom.

On Sunday, September 14th 2014, you can attend the 2104 J1 Con at the First District Plaza on 3801 Market Street in Philadelphia, PA 19104. Doors open at 12pm EST.

When he’s not busy juggling these ventures, he’s working on graphic design projects, illustrating and writing his own comics, directing and filming for the J1 Studios YouTube Channel, blogging, speaking at schools, and a myriad of other projects.

The Interview

In our interview, Jason gave us insight on his dedication to his work, how he sees his projects moving forward in the future, and we get gritty about Philadelphia and how it supports small ventures. Jason also opens up about the upcoming re-boot of his comic “Angel Savior“. Sit back, grab a snack and enjoy.
