ABOUT JASON FREENY

Born 1970, Silver Spring Maryland. The son of hippies and youngest of three siblings.

Jason studied Industrial Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY.

Spending most of the 90's traveling the globe as a muralist and theatrical designer, Jason joined MTV's Special Events department in 1997 as a freelance designer. While there, Jason helped design and create stage sets, props, and custom artwork for MTV Networks live events and trade roductions worldwide. Jason's most recognizable contributions were his custom trophies created for MTV's "Rock-n-Jock" series and "TRL Awards" televised events.

Jason created his first fictional anatomy in 2000 with his depiction of the mythological "Incubus".

Armed with a youthful, overactive imagination, Jason creates smart, intricate illustrations that tickle the deviant intellect through a mix of hard graphics, pop iconography and wit.

During the day, Jason works in Manhattan as a mild mannered interface designer. At night, after the kids go to sleep, he can be found hunched over his computer developing works of candy colored madness.

Jason aspires to one day drop the daytime gig...

That or work with Pixar :B

Around that same time, through a series of hand painted, NSFW "Pin-Up" themed illustrations, Jason's personal artwork began attaining notoriety, gracing the pages of such magazines as Heavy Metal, Juxtapoz Erotica, Penthouse and Time Out New York.

In 2002, after the birth of his son, Jason surrendered his messy, toxic studio for a nursery and went digital. A year later he took a staff position as a toy designer. And while that only lasted a year, the stylistic influence these two events had on his creations is apparent, spawning a surreal mixture where innocence clashes with maturity.
