Case Jernigan grew up by the sea in Charleston, South Carolina. He drew flying heroes and hairy monsters across every school notebook. He studied classical history and painting at William & Mary, The New York Studio School and in Italy, where he promptly and helplessly fell in love with Piero della Francesca, Giotto, Brunelleschi, and his wife, Cassandra. He moved into a cold but light filled studio in East Williamsburg and began to play with paper and ink. A child of the 80’s and 90’s, early influences upon his drawing roared back. History picture books, illustrated Greek mythology classics, retro video games, Saturday morning animation and comic books. He still lives and works in East Williamsburg and makes stop-motion animations, drawings and paper cutout lightboxes about nostalgia, politics, sports and memory.
