We’re very excited to introduce you to Evan Csulik who started working with Eric Miller Animation Studios last month as a freelance conceptual illustrator and designer. He will be working with us to create fun, beautiful and imaginative worlds. He will mostly be creating designs for our marketing and social media, but will also help out on other projects including some of our own original ideas.

Evan grew up in Sarasota, Florida where his enthusiasm for visual story-telling, and picture making first began to grow. This love for the arts continue to grow over his lifetime. He is extremely passionate about environment design from observing the natural and man-made world.

While growing up, Evan was in love with watching cartoons from Disney, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network. He drew for most of his childhood in sketchbooks and doodled on post-it notes. It wasn’t until late high school he wanted to pursue his passion for art. He was accepted to Ringling College of Art and Design in 2012 and majored in illustration. It wasn’t until halfway through his time there when he realized he wanted to pursue his career in animation.

 Evan is not all work and no play. In his free time, he enjoys longboarding, hiking, playing video games, and eating ice cream.

We are honored to have Evan onboard with us, and can’t wait to see what amazing worlds he creates in the coming months. Keep a lookout on our website and social media for more of his work.
