Jay Rynn
I primarily work with character design and digital painting/illustration and I'm pursuing work in visual development for games and animation.
 I like to create positive representation for underrepresented groups that uplift and bring joy to their audiences by creating visual diversity in my characters. When people look at my characters, they feel represented in a positive way and have more characters like them to attach to and nerd out over.
Nerd culture drives how I work. My goal is to invoke the same amount of interest and enthusiasm from others as my favorite media does for me. Specifically, I’m interested in the characters that people become attached to, why that connection is made, and what that says about the fan.
I received my AFA from Snow College in 2019 and I am currently pursuing my BFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.​​​​​​​
