TimLarsonSocialPhoto

Tim is an amazing and hardworking guy who I first met as a student at Academy of Art University. He originally dreamed of being a fine artist and graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Illustration/Graphic Design. After working as a freelance artist and graphic designer he decided to switch careers to become a 2D animator. Now he works as a lead animator at Concept Art House, a mobile game studio in San Francisco, CA. He’s also illustrating a children’s book in his spare time that he and the author are hoping to shop around to find a publisher, or publish themselves. I know all of you will enjoy hearing what he has to say and will be inspired by his words of wisdom!
