Toy Anatomy Artist Jason Freeny
Born 1970, Silver Spring Maryland. The son of hippies and youngest of three siblings. 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. 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. 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.
