Name: Stephan McGowan
Location: Montreal, Canada
Education: Bachelor of Applied Arts Animation (BAA)
Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning
Born and raised on Lulu Island, I have been drawing and painting for as long as I could hold a pencil. I moved to Toronto to follow my passion for art and expression at Sheridan for a 4 year bachelor degree and have set up shop in Montreal since. Starting as a small hobby at a local convention, I now enjoy traveling the world to galleries, conventions and trade shows with my work during the fall and summer months, spending my winters and springs freelancing for various clients.
I am an animator through training and an illustrator by hobby turned professional. I love dabbling in all kinds of mediums, themes and techniques, from children's artwork in watercolour to high rendered scifi realism in photoshop. I have both professional training and years of personal experience in a wide variety of both animation and illustration programs.
