Case Jernigan grew up by the sea in Charleston, South Carolina. He drew soaring 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. After school, he moved into a cold but light filled studio in East Williamsburg and began to play with ink, paper, and film. 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, iconic sports figures, Saturday morning animation and comic books.
He has exhibited lightboxes, paper cutouts and drawings throughout the USA and screened short films in New York, Berlin and Amsterdam. He has participated in residencies through the Art Students League and the Center for Book Arts in New York.
An avid soccer fan, Case’s cutouts and animations have found a niche audience in the soccer community, where he’s made commissioned work for The New York Times, The Guardian and Howler, brands like Adidas, NIKE, and Under Armour, and teams throughout the globe such as Chelsea, Juventus, and NYCFC.
