Based On Real Events. This is the public site and blog for Based On Real Events. There’s a Patreon and a private blog for Patrons with early access to limited editions and exclusive content.

I’ve made the Based On Real Events platform consisting of:

1- Patreon: Private & Public Posts with exclusive reward tiers & early access to paintings and other artwork.

2- Tumblr Blog: Private Posts and download links. Password & Link supplied with Patreon support or via Ko-Fi support.

3- Twitter Account: Private a place for Based On Real Events patrons to connect sister to the private Tumblr.

4- WordPress Blog: A Public space to introduce share and Based On Real Events as it evolves.

5- Mailing List: It’ll come in handy when my next exhibition and other major exclusives happen.


6- JasonXLee.com: Public – Still my main site for featuring music and gig photography with the @Jason_X_Lee Twitter account.

7- Shop: Public – Some artworks will be made available here eventually.


8 – Vimeo, Flickr, MailChimp, Gmail, Google Sheets, Dropbox, Evernote, PayPal and Big Cartel, phone apps that are all put to work in the background.

It has taken me a few years working at devising this platform, down one rabbit hole then another, testing and pushing the limits of what they allow.

The hours and investment in studio time, gear, content creation and learning these platforms is one thing.

The fruit of adventure.

Jason Lee

Ballydehob, West Cork 2017.


“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A ‘man’s’ whole life is a succession of moment after moment. There will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the moment.”  – from The Hagakure: The Way Of The Samurai.
