Hey. I’m Jesse. 

I am a visual effects artist... working on movies, commercials, etc while simultaneously creating artwork using many of the same techniques. 

The piece I'm most proud of is Rebirth of Gaea... a massive, insanely-detailed digital collage based on Greek Mythology. Other personal favorites include a computer-generated fluid simulation inspired by the relationship between perception and reality and lighting my head on fire as part of a series of short films for my kids about what happens when we die.

Career-wise, a highlight for me was being the Creative Director for Super Bowl LV's augmented reality graphics. I also designed and animated Batman's phone in Justice League and smeared Billie Eillish for the Grammys. Some of the projects I've worked on are in the permanent collection of the MOMA and Whitney. Others have been shortlisted for Academy Awards.

My artwork is now available as NFTs on OpenSea and I occasionally post my latest work on InstagramIf you'd like to connect, feel free to reach out. jessenewman@mac.com.

Thanks! Jesse
