Bio

My name is Garnet Garcia and I am a student at the New York City College of Technology. I am a designer and illustrator what focuses on storyboard and character design for comics and film. I hope to one day publish multiple comics and stories to be adapted into feature films as well as become an executive producer for my own show. I am a strong believer in teamwork, collaboration, taking risks, and never ending growth. I grew up in a family of creative minds that always encouraged me to use my natural gift for art. Even though I went to study architecture at Syracuse University, I found that my true passion lies in creating characters and stories like in the animated shows and movies I grew up watching. I found inspiration in the art and works of creators such as Bryan Konietzko, Michael Dante DiMartino, Rebecca Sugar, and Kohei Horikoshi. In my last year at City Tech, I have been able to study multitudinous variations of media and art such a graphic design, video media, fine arts, and more. These have all helped me diversity my skill as well as apply what I learn in one classroom to what I do in another. Such application of knowledge is exactly what helps me grow in my own personal pursuits to create this story and bring it to life through.

What makes art so unique and subjective to each and every artist is the vision and mindset behind it. Diversity is one of the most amazing things about this world. So many different backgrounds, personalities, looks, and lives. It tells a story, all of us intertwined together gives us the opportunity to see beyond what we already know and learn from the knowledge and experiences of others. Through our imagination, we are able to push the limits of our visions and aspirations, and dare to dream about making our mark on this world. Diversity. Story. Imagination. Growth. Those are my key values and what I put intend to put into my art every time my pencil hits the paper. When I make art, it’s an extension of myself, my values and my way at looking at the world. I want to share that with the world.
