Middletown, NJ
Visual Communication Design and Animation (minors)

Jesse Price is an illustrator based out of Middletown New Jersey interested in working for the entertainment/animation industry.  Ever since he was little, Jesse has been fascinated with the art of animation and cartoons, a theme that fuels his body of work.

Through determination, perseverance, and the power of coffee, he has been fortunate enough to work at companies including WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), creating shirts for superstars like Kofi Kingston and The New Day, The Kabuki Warriors, and The Forgotten Sons. In addition, his work has been featured in exhibitions at the Joseloff Gallery and Open Studio in Hartford Connecticut.

In his off time, Jesse loves hanging with friends and family, going on crazy nonsensical adventures.


Noir Self-Portrait (above)
This self-portrait was made for the theme of our Senior Show, Deco 2020. I wanted to emulate the look and feel of Frank Miller’s Sin City, a graphic novel that detailing the stories of four noir characters.
Rickety Rick
Clumsy and reckless, Rickety Rick flies through the air at dusk. I want the audience to feel like Rick is landing on top of them, coming in for an uncontrolled landing.
The Wrestler
Inspired by Nacho Libre, I wanted to tell the story of a wrestler who although appears like a menacing mass of muscle, is actually soft at heart.
Paper Girl
This character is the embodiment of spunk. She has a tough shell and cares little about authority. Although her job is to deliver the daily paper, she struggles to find the patience and discipline to complete this task.
The Standoff
This standoff is made to evoke the feeling of spaghetti western nostalgia. I want the viewer to feel up close and personal to the action and intense engagement.
Sushi Delivery
I wanted to recreate my brief high school experience as a sushi delivery guy from my point of view. Instead of dealing with unhappy customers, however, I am forced to fight the creatures of the night.
Calamari Anyone?
I focused on creating a unique composition that alluded to a problem without actually showing the monster’s face. I intend the viewer to figure out the story for themselves, will she perish in the face of danger? Or will she be victorious?
Excuse Me, Sir. You’re Interrupting My Tea Time
Creating this was a lot of fun and I wanted to evoke a sense of comedy and sophistication towards a primate that people often view as a zoo animal. This baboon is free from the zoo, however, he has taken some of mankind’s mannerisms with him.
