I have RPI zero W (OS: Jessie) and 3.5'' lcd touch display. Is there a way to display custom boot image (or animation) on LCD until RPI boots up to GUI? I tried to clean boot up text, but it doesn't look professional.

Does anyone have any suggestion?

Depending on your OS you will be able to install plymouth. This tool allows you to create a custom splash screen while booting your OS.

Here is a useful link on how to set up Plymouth from the Ubuntu Wiki.
