Matt Gaser is a Spectrum award winning Illustrator/ Visual Development Artist living in Northern California.  He began his studies learning Illustration and Entertainment Design at Art Center College of Design.  During his tenure as a driven student he interned at Klasky Csupo as a Background/Prop Designer for the animated series Rugrats before completing his studies. After Graduation he worked in video games for six years concept designing on such titles as Eragon, and Lord of the Rings The Two Towers.

The Games industry eventually led him to an amazing opportunity working for Lucasfilm on the CG animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  After several years at Lucasfilm helping craft season 1&2, he decided to shift gears and in the fall of 2009 decided to embark, freelancing full- time out of his studio.  Some higher profile projects he’s been designing for in recent years include Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Feature film HOP, and a new undisclosed animated movie currently in development through Sony Pictures Animation.  His passion for making books has also led him to a two book deal with Chronicle Books, developing a fantasy adventure series geared towards children and young adults.

“I’ve been a fan of Sakura products since I was a kid!  I love Micron pens and use them as a concept designer creating characters and the worlds around them.  Sketching with these pens on marker paper helps my work flow.  Fleshing out ideas and using these drawings as inspiration for paintings and illustrations.”

Watch artist Miguel Endara’s incredible video entitled, “Hero.” Miguel’s stippling piece was inspired by his dad and is composed entirely out of 3.2 million dots made with an 005  Pigma Micron pen. 

Both the video and the artwork were created and produced by Miguel Endara, and this is not a paid advertisement for Sakura of America. Miguel shared this beautiful video with us and we want to share it with you!
