Austen is an LGBT Visual Development Artist and Illustrator based in San Francisco. He graduated from Academy of Art University in December of 2019. Ever since Austen was a youngin’, he was shaped and endlessly inspired by the splendor of animated films and TV shows and hoped to one-day spark inspiration in the hearts of others with his work. When he isn’t drawing or painting, he’s going to museums, watching movies, listening to music (or a good podcast), or petting dogs. Fun fact: He used to attend college for physics, but left his spot on the dean’s list to pursue his true passion: art!
