This grew into three spin-off series and touring live shows. Jay then turned his attention to a career in commercial art for brands such as Sony, Adidas, and Levis. It was not long before he started up his own custom- made trucker cap brand, Lucky Seven Caps.In the summer of 2010 he returned to his favourite dinosaurs and exhibited his supersaurs sculptures in a one man show in Beverly Hills, LA. The eighty-thousand square-foot space was filled with nine full-sized supersaurs.
