What is your name and your current occupation?
I’m Paolo Libunao. Not much of an animator. I’m into pre-visualization i.e. story boarding and concept art. I also illustrate comic books and other stuff. I work freelance.

What is your name and your current occupation?
My name is George Pfromm and I am a freelance animator and illustrator, and a full time faculty member in the animation department at the New England Institute of Art.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
Hands down, storyboard artist at Flying Rhinoceros Inc. in Portland Oregon in 1999 –2000. It was my first full time animation job and I have not worked with the level of talent like that since.

How did you become interested in animation?
I blame it all on Jonny Quest, the Herculoids, and Alex Toth in general I guess. I watched cartoons every morning on Saturdays as a kid in the seventies, and used comic books to give me through the long week until Continue…
