Bio

Case Jernigan draws, makes paper art and animated films. Fascinated by light up toys, 1980’s Japanese animation, and retro video games, Case imbues his characters with an unsettling charm. He grew up by the sea in Charleston, SC, and he’s a sucker for nostalgia, iconic sports heroes, monsters and mythology.  He’s held residencies at The Center for Book Arts, NY, the Saltonstall Foundation, NY, and is a 2019-2020 Sharpe-Walentas Studio Resident, NY. He’s screened short films in festivals like The Sante Fe Film Festival and #11MM Berlin. A Screen Australia grant winner, he’s currently collaborating with Closer Productions to craft a series of animated shorts about soccer fans. He’s made murals, animations and illustrations for media outlets and brands like The New York Times, The Guardian, adidas, and NIKE.  He studied painting at William & Mary and the New York Studio School.
