Who is S.Q.?
Big Game Hunter of the Paleo-Chilean Savannah? Samurai assassin from the Edo dynasty? Star Fighter Pilot from the year 2424? Nah...you can just call me Steve.
Born in a little suburb north of Baltimore, I received my BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design. After graduating and not being nearly satisfied with the amount of debt I had accumulated, I attended Animation Mentor and received my Certificate in Character Animation.
From there I worked very breifly as an illustrator for elementary school textbooks before moving onto the Baltimore based animation studio Bully! Entertainment. While employed as an Animator/Concept Artist, I spend my four years there working with such clients as PBS Kids, GEICO, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and The Boston Children's Hospital (to name a few).
Like any good Art Nerd I enjoy Miyazaki films, Post Rock that uses banjos and mandolins, anything Neil Gaiman touches and sitting in country fields counting meteorites. It's a good life.
I still call Baltimore home but have been know to trot the globe with my dog Mumford, (shown above, on the Texas/Oklahoma border) from time to time.
