My name is James Y. I graduated from the Master of Fine Arts Program of Minneapolis College of Art and Design where I also worked as a digital editor, designer and photographer for both the MFA program and the school’s library for the past two years.
I have a firm grasp on color, perspective, light, and composition. I have worked as a concept artist at Make Visual. As a concept artist at MAKE, my duty includes working and communicating with the 3D department, brain-storming to come up with great ideas as well as using Adobe Creative Suite to generate concept arts for objects, characters and scenery for various pitches and on-going projects. I also worked on the concept arts for Angry Birds Projects.
I am also an award winning illustrator, I have won runnerups from Creative Quarterly for several times.
Videos, illustrations and CG portfolios of my work are available upon request along with my resume, references and more details regarding my qualifications.
I am a native speaker of Mandarin. I received my BFA from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which is one of the best universities in China (ranks 4th). Coming from Shanghai, my spoken Chinese is considered almost without any recognizable accent, in another word, it is very standard. My tutoring methods are not fixed, it varies from individuals to individuals. It changes with students' interested topics, levels in Chinese. I have always been trying to create an environment that suits my students the best, and I am happy to see that they grow fast with encouragements and inspirations.
I earned my Master of Fine Arts degree from Minneapolis of College of Art and Design. I have been trained in the classic drawing and painting for over 15 years, I have really firm understanding of color, perspective and space. I am good at both traditional painting and digital ones.
I have a design background from my undergrad. I have a very firm grasp on Adobe Creative Suite. For the past 18 months, I worked for the MFA program as a photographer, digital editor and assistant. I have handled most of the digital photo assets for this program. My duties include shooting, maintaining and organizing digital assets on an online database, assisting the head of the MFA program with ongoing art activities, and creating time-based files and presentations in PowerPoint and Keynote for documentation and promotional purposes.
