ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Brian Gonzales is a professional artist specializing in commercial branding, graphic design, web development and marketing for consumer facing companies and brands around the world. He was born in the late seventies and proudly grew up in the eighties. He devoured entertainment, fashion, and products that defined my generation, and especially fell in love with the medium of comic books, science fiction, toys, and animation.
When he was in the 7th grade, his friends and him went to a local independent theater called Cinema 21 here in Portland, Oregon to watch the highly anticipated Japanese cyberpunk animation movie called Akira. His young eyes had never seen such a curation of mind melting art, speed, motion blurs, neons, intense emotion, and dark subject matter.
Akira is just one of many amazing Japanese animation titles commonly referred to as Manga or Anime (short for Japanese style Anim-ation).
