I always try and keep the laFraise community in the look with my personal projects and since you guys have shown a lot of interest in the past in regards to my wallpacks, I wanted to fill you in on the latest installment in my ongoing wallpack series.
This collection represents my favorite personal pieces over the last 1-2 years. All wallpapers illustrated by Jared Nickerson/J3Concepts/Jthree.
The Jthree Wallpack 2010 consists of 26 Desktop wallpapers in 1920×1200 and 2560×1600 resolutions and 24 iPad wallpapers in 1024×1024 resolution. (iPad walls will also work with the iPhone and other like phones)
Please respect the copyright included with the pack.
More reminiscent of my older work/style. Needed to flex my design muscle, haven’t been able to do any full on personal work in about 2 months. This is a pseudo album cover for a pseudo band, along with tshirt merchandise.
laFraise has been keeping me fairly busy over the last few months along with other freelance endeavors, so it’s nice to be able to sit down and work on some personal projects. Face is based on an image of my wife from a few years back. Full details on Behance.
Lessons in Leaving Your World Behind is a showcase of some of my favorite work from the last 2-3 years. The showcase was presented on December 3rd at Design Commission Gallery at 310 South Washington St., Seattle, WA and featured 25-30 pieces. The show consisted of current work along with some pieces that have never been available before as prints. All pieces are for sale. There is also 3 Limited Edition framed prints for sale.
Opening night we already sold a number of pieces and the feedback was all positive. The show overall went great and the gallery was packed for most of the night.
I wasn’t sure initially how people would respond to a solely digital show, but the response was excellent, that’s all I could have asked for.
Thanks to all who attended and showed their support.
Thanks to Design Commission Gallery and big thanks to my Intern Eleanor Harvey and Matty Mitchell for the mural painting and show setup.
This painting is for the opening night event of Lessons in Leaving Your World Behind.
My intern (Eleanor) and an employee at Design Commission Gallery (Matty) painted this mural on the entrance wall for the show.
The design is based off my work, For the Love of the Ever Expanding Black Mass.
Well some of you have asked what exactly it is that I do for laFraise now that I am the new Art Director, well…
I work closely with the moderation team to go through the many submissions we get here. We moderate for things such as style, copyright, presentation and overall message or theme. I make sure that things are up to the regular standards or even higher.
Also all the little graphics you see around that were put in place by the Art Director before me; Norbert Reissig, I am continuing on with that style. I’m creating more variations and personalities for our Edgar Allan Roll character that you see everywhere along with the other various creatures used throughout laFraise, including the header (Holiday header you see now) and all advertising. Any handtag and branding work from now on will also be handled by me. It’s hard picking up someone else’s style, but I’m sure to give it my own twist as I go along.
Also I have a major hand in selecting the winners each week for classic, mad, and sponsored contests.
Along with all of that I also have a hand in the direction of style that laFraise represents now and in the future.
And now you know, I’m here to make laFraise look pretty :)
