On Brandon Robinson..Pt 3: 2000-Present

Well here we are in the present 2008 looking back in the span of 8 years. Not all of the pictures show all that have inspired me. I graduated from High School in 2000 and entered The Academy of Art University in Spring 2001. Art school exposed me to the important techniques, application, and knowledge for my art career. While there I was inspired by all the different genres and industries that the Arts and Entertainment world has to offer. I was inspired by many Fashion Designers, New Media/Graphic Designers, Industrial Designers, Illustrators, Fine Artists, and most importantly Animators! I was also exposed to the great history of Art and that's where I was fully exposed to Leonardo Davinci, Michealangelo, Raphael, Dontello( Not the turtles yall! That was back in the 80's G!) , Picasso, Carvagio, and others but, gravitated to a few of the 20 century like Norman Rockwell, Kathe Kolowitz, Salvador Dali, Edward Hopper, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Warhol, Peter Max, and my very favorite John Singer Sargent. In the popular arts world artist I began to discover and dig where Alex Ross, Steve Gordon, Jeff Matsuda, Sean "Cheeks" Galloway, Lesean Thomas, Charles Park, Long Vo, UDON Entertainment( I still want to work there), Omar Dogan, Alvin Lee, Pat Lee(DreamWave), Liquid!, Joe Madudera, Bill Presing, Nolan Obena, Jose Lopez, Ed Benes, Doze Green, Jeremy Fish, Gary Baseman, Jim Woodring, Shane Glines, Stephen Silver and many more. On the Anime front: Satoshi Kon, Shinchiro Watanabe, Makoto Shinkai, Osama Tezuka, Miyazaki, and the list continues on. I was also blessed to meet some of the most talented artists in my time of school like Albert T, Megan Wolfe T, Piya W, Rob Barros, Kanishka M, Genevieve, Sylvia Ji, Jason Worthington, Bill Sanchez, Chuck Pyle, Sherrie Sinclair, Marv Werlin, Eddie , Micheal Buffington, Camille Lapointes Lyones, Razael Cortez, Johnathan Fung, Diana K Lee, Sean Featherstone, Ken Junior, Sean O'Neal, Alex "O_8" Ahad, Christian Sy, PMBQ, Laura (Pinku), Cleven "Goodie" Goudeau, Bordin, Estavan, Willie Real, Imran, Taif, Saif, Alfredo, Ed, Creatures, The Earth Tones, Rene Pulido, John Pearson, Joe Blum, Grant Alexander, Arnie, Jim, Daniel, Charles, Roweena, Rico, Boonie, Tiege, Ron, Julian, Sean, Animation Lab Techs, Sue, Smalls, "Sto, Sherwin, Antony, Nick, Manny, Indvidual Collective, and many more wonderful and talented indivduals who have inspired me to keep creating. Well this is where Ive been now the question is where am I going......
