JUDE BUFFUM is an illustrator/designer from Philadelphia. He graduated from the Tyler School of Art in 2001 with a BFA in Graphic Arts and Design, where he went on to teach design and typography courses for five years. While he was a part of the design and illustration duo Headcase Design (2002–2007), Jude designed books for such pop-culture phenomena as the Broadway show “Wicked” and HBO’s “The Sopranos”, as well as the best-selling book The Baby Owner’s Manual, which he also illustrated. Jude’s design and illustration have been featured in such publications as Graphis, Communication Arts, Print, and American Illustration, and exhibited nationally. In addition to his commercial work, he also has frequent exhibitions of his politically-charged paintings and designer toys, which are inspired by the pixelated graphics of early video games.
