Michelle Hodgson


I have 3 years work experience in the entertainment industry working in production roles at a major VFX studio and in mobile gaming. In addition I have over 13 years experience as a digital artist and my primary passion is in illustration. I am currently looking for creative opportunities in design, illustration, and digital art.

My professional experience has centered around combining technology and entertainment. Most recently I worked as a production assistant on Jurassic World - The Ride for Industrial Light & Magic. In this role I worked with artistic leadership and the production team to resolve issues and ensure all media was organized and stored appropriately. Before that, I worked at a mobile game company where I worked with the art and story team to create the visual content. I am very familiar with working in a fast paced studio environment and I understand how important it is to have reliable and talented artists that communicate effectively and manage time wisely.

I have been a illustrator with a focus on drawing characters for over 13 years, and I love showing personality and creativity through style and color choice. I have a deep understanding of film from my undergraduate degree in Film from UC Berkeley, and I have had independent training in digital and traditional fundamentals in character design, traditional painting, visual development, color theory, 3D modeling and more.
