|Play time is OVER. School is NOW in session!|
My name is Brenden Oshima, and I'm a trained illustrator and practicing graphic artist. I have a degree in Cinema, with an emphasis in Animation. I have directed, filmed, and edited independent live-action shorts. I have also worked with several start-up companies to develop character designs and backgrounds for gaming apps.|
As an illustrator and graphic artist at Pearson Education, I produce illustrations and cover art for kindergarten to 12th grade educational materials. My experience at Pearson Education has also further advanced my skills in UI design and other technical aspects in app development.
When I'm not under a tight and unpredicatble deadline, you can find me working on my personal projects and exhibiting at art conventions. I love experimenting and creating graphic art influenced by my favorite childhood memories from the 80's and 90's. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird are two of my biggest influences. I am currently writing and developing my first comic action adventure: SMOG CITY, release date to be announced. Please stay tune!
