This was a collaborative effort with Filip Komorowski for his clothing label Spontan. Filip did the original typo base and I did the typo detailing along with surrounding elements/characters. Was a fun project to work on, and Filip is an incredibly talented artist. Keep your eyes peeled for more collabs between Filip and myself.
This was a logo and logo treatment for Montreal based restaurant, Cadillac Burger. Cadillac burger will be opening later this year in core downtown Montreal, Quebec. They'll serve classic hamburgers, poutine, onion rings etc. all with very high quality ingredients and cooking techniques. All this in a comfortable, fresh, urban environment.
I'm very happy with the final results of the logo treatment. I think it illustrates the more classy "Cadillac" theme with the diamonds and flowers and then the more down to earth rustic feel with the cleavers and wood grains. Client was great to work with and very precise on what they wanted but also allowing me to have artistic freedom ie: eyeballs, coral, purple coloring, typo style etc.

This is for the Mr. Topstache charity project created and curated by friend Brandon Ilenstine. The project will involve 10+ different artists from the Seattle area and will all be based on Brandon's Mr. Topstache character. All designs will be printed on limited edition tees and prints and all proceeds will go towards helping local aspiring young artists. Tee and prints will be up for viewing and sale early 2011.
Maleficent is easily one of my favorite movie villains, and since I almost never do fan art, I figured I'd give it a go. This piece is of course based on Disney's Maleficent character and a mixture of The Last Vampire Astronaut and Go To Sleep Citizen. I also envisioned Maleficent as some sort of vampire sorceress with her rather vampire-esque appearance and her shape shifting ability. This piece reflects that.
When I worked on this original design back in 2006 (Spiders, Ice Cream & Morphine), I decided to do a revision of it every year... so far this is only the 2nd I've done. The original girls were based on 1930s era (roughly) art nouveau absinthe ads. Shoes, iPad case, iPhone case, and print will be available in the next 24 hours at Artsprojekt [link]
Title: The Great Destroyer Client: Soyu Project: Creative Zodiac Art Direction & Illustration: Jthree Concepts/Jared K. Nickerson
This is for the upcoming Crative Zodiac release by Soyu. The idea was to have an artwork based on a specific animal. I love dogs and have never actually used one in any of my design/illustration work, so it seemed fitting. I tried to combine a number of different cultural references. including Chinese, Japanese, Egyptian, Mayan and North American. I based the core character on my reoccurring female character; Persephone. This current iteration of her I based on an Egyptian Anubis with android-like features.
