I’m Jade L. Wilkinson-DeRoché! (A mouthful, I know.) For simplicity’s sake, I go by Jade Lucille. My middle name is an homage to my Grenadian grandmother, Lucie, and my French-Canadian grandmother, Lucille. This name speaks to my heritage and my work, as I am a proud Grenadian-Canadian artist whose upbringing and identity have greatly impacted the work I create. 

I take inspiration mainly from my childhood. My work often pulls from that nostalgia. The result looks as if the early 70s and Y2K had a lovechild that watched a little too many cartoons. My goal is to create work for people like me. I want myself, my friends, and anybody who doesn’t feel represented to be able to see themselves in my work.


HADESTOWN is a passion project created for fans of the Tony Award-winning musical that comprises three records, three vinyl sleeves and a series of motion graphics. This vinyl box set is a beautiful collector’s item that goes beyond conventional musical-theatre album art by depicting narrative elements in each final design. By marrying contemporary design elements with a more traditional illustrative approach, this set lends itself more authentically to the show’s period, music and overall aesthetic.


Inspired by the myth of the same name, POLYBIUS is a comic about the iconic cabinet’s legend being brought to life. This infamous arcade machine was known for its captivating visuals and addicting nature. Our protagonists, Theo, Leo & Basil, question whether the myth remains fact or fiction as they connect the cabinet’s legend with a string of missing children’s incidents.

Spectacle in Horror

Spectacle in Horror is a series of film posters based on the themes of spectacle, exploitation and the glamorization of violence in horror. Each poster holds a visual element of the “media” they’re associated with: film for Nope, the internet for Perfect Blue, and video games/arcade cabinets for Five Nights at Freddy’s. The most important goal for these posters is to divert from the mystique of traditional horror posters, which often focus more on terror and building suspense. Instead, my posters focus on confronting the viewer with the same trauma the film’s characters face. The viewer does not deserve to be spared from the horror.
