#3 Jason Cartwright and Tara Wilcox

| November 3, 2010 | 1 Comment

Thirty years ago, Jason Cartwright was seriously injured in a car accident that claimed the life of his fiancee, Tara Wilcox.  Devastated by his loss, Jason spent the next four years traveling, trying to come to terms with his loss.  He even fathered a child, a daughter named Jennifer, with Mariko Yamashita, whom he had met while traveling through California.  However, Jason was plagued by strange dreams and what appeared to be hallucinations.  Fearing that he was losing his sanity, Jason sought help to deal with these events…but he was stunned by the truth.  The accident that nearly claimed his life had in fact triggered his latent psychic abilities, allowing him to see spirits, those who existed between the world of the living and the dead.  Through his ability, he was also reunited with Tara’s spirit.

Today,  Jason travels the world as a medium and ghost hunter.  Despite his age, he is can still hold his own in a fight (although fisticuffs are a last resort for him).  He is not alone–Tara also travels with him.  Their partnership–a human and a ghost–allows them to solve cases of that deal with the spirit world.  And even though she has passed beyond the doorway of life, Tara still loves and cares for Jason, and he has never stopped loving her.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
