MCA alumni, 1993 Illustration
lecture on Tuesday, March 29, 7 pm in Callicott
Jack completed his degree at the Memphis College of Art, where an exchange with the San Francisco Art Institute convinced Jack to ultimately move west. In 1996, he became Senior Designer at the Bay Area firm DesignSite, where he mainly focused on print design and illustration...landing a spot in Print Magazine's Design Annual. With the advent of digital video, his work soon evolved to animation and motion graphics. In 2000 he moved to New York where he completed Food, an award-winning animated film shown on PBS and at festivals worldwide. In 2001, Jack and his partner Matthew Robbins launched Artfool, a multidisciplinary design studio that went on to become one of New York's finest event design companies, later chosen as one of Modern Bride's 25 Trendsetters of the Year and frequently featured on Martha Stewart. Jack has had the privilege to work with some of the best animation studios and directors in New York, and his work has been seen most everywhere there is a television, with spots for MTV, VH1, ABC, NBC, HBO, Showtime, the Style Network and the Discovery Channel, as well as having work featured in The New York Times, Print Magazine, Wired and Newsweek.
