James Chasco

I am currently an art student at MATC. I will be graduating in the fall of 2020 with a degree in 2D animation. I am a passionate artist with an interest in both Character Design and Story Development. I also have experience with 2D Animation, Game Art, Storyboarding, Visual Effects, and even Basic 3D Modeling. Even though my emphasis is in 2D animation. I want to continue growing and learning in both the 2D and 3D world. Some of my goals include doing freelance character art, doing commission and animation work for others, writing and illustrating stories, creating video games with 2D and 3D game art, as well as my most ambitious goal: pitching a show to a network.
