Michael Gurau has worked in animation and the fine arts for over 15 years. He first studied at Johnson County Community College and went on to study at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). Based in California, he worked on projects such as Futurama, Family Guy, Baby Blues, and Looney Tunes Shorts. Michael has worked extensively with model and toy prototypes, including production, color-matching, and painting. His work is in the collections of Clive Barker, creator of the Hellraiser series, Jonathan Davis (singer for the metal band Korn), Charlie Benante (drummer for the metal band Anthrax), Marilyn Manson, and Johnny Depp. He has further developed himself as an artist through one-on-one drawing sessions with Steve Huston, Karl Gnass and Glenn Vilppu, and classes through other continuing education venues. Michael returned to Johnson County Community College and studied graphic design and photography, graduating in 2012. He will continue grow as an artist.
