Evan was born in the small mid-western town of Rochester, IL. and enjoyed the benefit of having three brothers to help stave off boredom. Imbued with a unique sense of creativity that could only have been nourished in a gang of young brothers, Evan developed an able imagination. Studying the technical elements of drawing and design at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield, IL. he transitioned to the Kansas City Art Institute to pursue a BFA with a major focus in Animation and Visual Storytelling.
Why settle for stagnation? Influenced by the likes of Jan Svankmeyer, Yuri Norstein, Oskar Ficshinger, Norman McLaren, and others, Evan is a proper acolyte to Motion; bringing the inanimate to life with stop-motion and pixilation techniques. His SGA Film, Brotherhood, was honored as Best Experimental Film in the ARFF Film Festival in Paris.
Why use a ladder? Evan is tall. Have some things around the studio and no desire to lug around that clunky climber? Just ask and Evan will get it. Evan is dependable.
