Jasper Wong

Illustrations by Jasper Wong. I hung out with him in Hawaii last month, and the guy is as humble as they come.

    This really reminds me of the work of a classmate of mine, however, I am really enjoying the color palette that seems constant in his work. Also, glad to hear about his being humble, just that character fact works so well to contrast the boisterous style of the works.

    He’s really an exceptional dude, but just really really really smelly. Like fermented tofu smelly.

    wow absolutly amazing, looks like alot of effort has gone into these illustrations, I’d think mr t would get angry if he seen the last image lol, a rainbow pouring out of his hood and ghosts popping out of his nipples. Reminds me of katamari damacy. Mental ideas, Jasper Wong have you ever thought of using these as t shirt designs?

  • Kyle

    Anyone that combines Mr.T and Rainbows is ok in my books.

    So this is the dude that did all those crazy ass pieces for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco! The posters are the one thing I look forward to on my way to work. Induct me into Jasper’s church of cool! Love it!

  • Chelsee

    almost looks like some parts of the works are in 3D.. wish I had a pair of 3D glasses to test that theory

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
