Erwin Madrid was born in the Philippines and grew up in California, USA. His talents were spotted very early on by Dreamworks, who hired him during his last semester at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. He worked on a lot of the Shrek franchise, as well as the Madagascar sequel. He also creates some beautiful children’s book illustrations and has illustrated a comic book titled ‘Ananke’, which looks incredible.
Erwin Madrid has inspired me a lot in my own work, so I hope he can do the same for you.
