Tim Burgard

I started out drawing comic books when I graduated Art Center College of Design and then worked in the animation industry until I transitioned into storyboarding commercials and film, with occasional TV gigs. I continued as a freelancer going back and forth in the entertainment business. Currently I am also a teacher at Art Center and a council member of the Illustrators and Matte Artists craft in local 800.
