Erwin Madrid. Illustrator of Animations

June 27, 2011

Erwin Madrid was born in the Philippines in 1978 and grew up in San Jose, California.

In 2003, Erwin earned his BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco CA.

During his last semester of college, he was hired by PDI/DreamWorks Animation where he contributed

production illustrations for the animated feature film, Shrek 2. He later became a visual development

artist for the ongoing Shrek franchise and the Madagascar sequel.

He has also done conceptual art for the video game industry for titles like Uncharted Drake’s Fortune.

In his spare time, Erwin travels and paints whenever he has a chance. He currently lives in the Bay Area

where he continues to provide concept art for the entertainment industry.

He has an amazing way of capturing scale and light in order to make his scenes dramatic.

Even in his personal painting from holiday trips abroad, he finds time to create stunning visual pieces

depicting scenes with beautiful colour, texture and depth.

It’s almost possible to feel the early evening sunlight. More amazing work on his blog and site here.
