Ms. EMMIE RODRIGUEZ

LEAD ARTIST / MANAGER

ABOUT ME

My name is Emmie Rodriguez. I am a digital illustrator and graphic designer. I was born into a family full of artists ranging from painters, to photographers, and to architects. Many of my influences come from video games, anime, manga, traditional Asian art, concept art, sci-fi movies and my travels. I spent my life teaching myself illustration with focus in character and weapon design, and started as a freelance graphic designer at the age of 16. I pursued Visual Communications in college under Eric Berendt and Chang Sik Kim, and also studied drawing under Bill Paskewitz. I strive to one day become a character and weapon design concept artist in the gaming industry.

 

Between being a self-employed artist and working at various t-shirt design companies, I also spent two years as an event face painter and special effects makeup artist. I have also spent time doing graphics work and murals for some small local businesses. In addition, I have done illustrations for comics, magazines and am currently illustrating a graphic novel.

 

In the classroom, I find it very easy to relate to the interests of my students and I take every opportunity I can find to help further their artistic abilities. I believe that each student has unlimited potential, and I’ll assist them in any way I can to help them hone and master the skills at which they strive to excel. I hope to provide a fun, energetic learning environment for the students and bring out the passion and drive they have for art. I see my younger self in them and I want to help pave the way for their creative futures.

 

I am the studio’s resident coffee addict. I run on spicy noodles and talk a lot about my cat. Pleased to meet you!
