Brian Cannady II is a multimedia artist and avid fan of mythology, superheroes, and manga. He earned his BFA and MFA in Computer Graphics from New York Institute of Technology. Brian's studies led him to develop the promotional mascot for SIGGRAPH Asia 2009. Though he studied digital sculpture, Brian's love of clay, watercolor, and digital painting inspire him the most. Currently, Brian exhibits his paintings, sculptures, and illustrations across galleries and conventions along the Northeast United States. His passion for the Arts led to earning the Marvin Horowitz Sculpture award. Brian has curated two exhibitions: Character Among Us and Our Muses Do Ninety. When he's not creating Brian enjoys relaxing by walking in nature, observing the world around him to take in inspiration, or reading a new comic/manga.
