More About Josh Mulligan

I am an animator who graduated from the College for Creative Studies in 2014. I primarily focus on creating animated films and digital illustrations. I enjoy developing the visual flow of movement and creating the structure to immerse the viewer in a whimsical imagination—the craft of making art in motion inspires most of my creations.

Along with producing art, I have also been instructing art workshops in the Detroit metropolitan area since 2010. The workshops that I provide focus on all the aspects of the animation production pipeline, drawing principles, and fundamental art-making skills. I like to teach art because encouraging others to create motives me never to stop creating.
