Jarett's illustrations delve deep into the dreamlike and the fantastical, with outsider themes of the misunderstood monster being a common thread within his work. A narrative usually arises, making his art accessible to the casual viewer but rewarding scrutiny and contemplation by revealing more about the piece. Jarett's illustrations mix ink and digital mediums, and as an animator, these illustrations are often given life within video. He has created artwork for a wide variety of projects including, album covers, gig posters, band merch, editorial illustrations, magazine covers, music festival promo material, film festival promo, theatre productions, public art installations and more. Jarett grew up watching cartoons and eating grilled cheese sandwiches, things he still enjoys to this day. He is strongly influenced by music, and has had the opportunity to expand upon his love of music and animation within various music video projects. In past years videos Jarett has been involved with have been nominated for numerous awards including a Juno Award for Best Video of the Year, a Much Music Video Award nomination for Rock Music Video of the Year, and a Much Music Video Award nomination for Best Post-Production in a Video. In 2016 Jarett was selected as 1 of 12 Canadian artists to appear on season 2 of CBC's Crash Gallery which aired in early 2017. Currently Jarett is also an active member on the QuickDraw Animation Society board of directors.
