Tail Jar - definition (noun):

1: A place to keep interesting, unusual or imaginary things.

As a youth I was told that I was born with a tail and that it was kept in a jar of spirits on top of the kitchen cupboard. At some stage I must have scaled the shelves to check, or realized I didn’t have a scar… Either way, I eventually became hip to their cunning ruse.

Since then, I’ve used the term “Tail Jar” to describe a place to keep interesting, unusual or imaginary things...

2: moniker of Australian creative/director/motion designer - Jasper St Aubyn West.

At some point I started using it as a kind of “personal brand” for my creative work as well.

As a result, people started referring to me as Tail Jar… Which was never the intention - but it seems to have stuck.
