Hi there! My name is Dwight Ligori and I’m surprised you’re actually reading this About me page… Who does this right?
Well of course you do. I will try not to be boring here, so here is a little bit of something about me.
How it started
I’ve been creative as long as I can remember! I came from a period in time where having a PC was a luxury and the 8-inch floppy disc was the thing you would use to store your data. With that said growing up using the pencil and rubber eraser without the CTRL-Z button was actually the best thing ever happened to me.
Marvel, DC and Top cow productions were the most creative media I could get my hands on and which I wanted to follow through and become a comic artist myself. How could anyone NOT want to be a comic/cartoon artist in the era of Transformers, He-man, M.A.S.K., Jayce and the wheeled warriors, Bionic Six, Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Bravestarr and you name it Aaagghhrr!
But then came ToyStory by Pixar studio’s in 1995 if I’m correct. CGI was the next best thing ever happened to me and I knew what I wanted to do.
Being an autodidact
But let’s skip the school part for now (KIDS… FINISH SCHOOL!!!). I started as a web designer in 2001 but Goldvish International gave me the opportunity to step in the world of 3d (industrial design). So by day a industrial designer/engineer and by night a 3d cg artist.
I love what I do, and creating something out of nothing by just having a idea to me is magical.
Enjoy life! Because we only have one (probably 🙂 but not likely)
