Comments on Style-
Personality-From what I could read from Linkedin.com, he seems to be down to earth in his letter of recommendations he had written for two other artists who had worked with him.
Miscellaneous-His skillset includes storyboarding, character design, illustration, traditional animation, photoshop, toon boom, character animation, digital illustration, after effects, and computer animation. He gave a recommendation to Bruce Zhou, a producer at Xing Xing Digital Corporation, working with him at HIT Entertainment, and Mike Church, Illustrator and Visualizer at Freelance.
