Artist Biography: Jeffrey Guerrero is a Digital Artist with a focus on 2D animation and storyboarding who currently resides in Arkansas. He likes to incorporate elements of fantasy, action, and comedy in his works to create stories full of movement and energy, bringing life to the fictional characters that he creates. His biggest inspirations include Hayao Miyazaki, Masaaki Yuasa, and Hiroyuki Imaishi.
As a kid Jeffrey would spend his time playing video games, watching cartoons, and spend lots of time online watching animations on sites like YouTube and Newgrounds. Inspired by the wonderful art that he saw online, Jeffrey decided to join the realm of digital art after discovering drawing tablets and obtaining his first one at the age of 12. During his time in school he would create comics with his friends and draw constantly in his notebooks during class. It wouldn’t be until later in high school that he would decide to pursue animation as a career because of his immense love for the medium.
As an animator and storyboard artist, Jeffrey seeks to increase his understanding of the in’s and out’s of animation and storytelling so he can create believable characters that people will enjoy. He also aims to expand his visual style so he can use whatever style he believes is fitting for the type of story he is building. Jeffrey has experimented with various styles throughout his years as an artist as his inspirations have changed over time. Currently he is very much influenced by both French and Japanese Animators, but he has also recently fallen in love with creating pixel art.
When he isn’t drawing, Jeffrey likes to spend his free time strumming his guitar, playing retro games, watching laserdisc movies, and listening to music on his record player like the hipster that he is.
