Jesse hails from the snowy rust belt after realizing you can’t shovel sunshine. He began working with digital media after years of working in traditional art forms. Although he hasn’t so much as touched a paintbrush since discovering the undo button, that doesn’t keep him from bringing a traditional feel to all of his work. He wrestles polygons into submission while simultaneously wrangling even the most stubborn pixels. Color palettes faint and storyboards quiver of fear in his mere presence. In his spare time he enjoys memorizing RGB color codes, and counseling underprivileged splines who've lost their path.
