ERIK IRWIN:

An interview from Erik Irwin: “I’m a graduate of Max the Mutt Animation School (now Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art & Design) with a diploma in Illustration for Sequential arts. I’m currently a working Illustrator who’s recent projects include storyboards, concept art and environment design for music videos. My skills lean towards realism characterized by an Inking style filled with bold blacks, and strong brush strokes that are heavily influenced by Comics and Cinema. I am well versed in both traditional and digital media. I have a strong and animated cartooning style as well, most evidently shown in my Weekly Webcomic “IHeartViking“.”
