My name is Edwin Gomez and I have been in the animation industry and education field for the last 15 years. I have gained an appreciation for the wonder and amazement that animation can inspire.
My personal work is highly influenced by the inner city which and the environment where I grew up (Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles, South Los Angeles). I have also been greatly influenced by the work of such artists including Yuri Norstien, Bob Clampett, Chuck Jones, Al Hirschfield, Bruce Timm, Shane Glines, and Eric Goldberg just to name a few.
I believe that as artists we should see change and evolution in everything we do within our artistic careers, and only through life experience can we begin to create story driven art.
