Gary Villareal is coming to ArmadilloCon! Gary Villareal graduated from the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University, and has worked for more than 5 years in the film and game industry.
Born and raised in a small Texas town, I like to describe myself as a little hippy, a lil hood, smoked in some old mesquite wood. I’ve drawn on and off since I could remember, but in my 20’s I grew a passion for concept design. I’m currently based in Los Angeles working as a concept artist for the VFX and Game Industry. Although I prefer traditional art, I love learning new mediums to express ideas in different ways to keep my creativity fresh. Some may describe my work as spiritual and multicultural, but I typically like bouncing around many subject matters to express myself. I often get inspiration by personal experiences, music, different cultures along with a curious mindset. Along with asking the question, “What if” to push my ideas one step further.
