About Me
My name is Brandon Coates and I am a concept artist, illustrator, and art director in the entertainment industry. 
Please feel free to take a look at my workmy resume, or reach out to me at coatesillustration@gmail.com.
I am lucky to have worked with and learned from some of the most incredible people in the industry at studios like Tonko House, Pixar, Sledgehammer Games, and Oculus. I am proud to have contributed to projects including The Dam Keeper Graphic Novel, Cars 3, Coco, and Call of Duty: WWII.
I am incredibly passionate about supporting teams to create the most compelling and beautiful stories possible. My main mission is to problem solve, serve, and support others to help bring their visions to life. I also see communication -- visually and otherwise -- to be one of my most important duties, and I strive to always be clear, constructive, engaged critically, and fun to work with. When I work with a team my goal is to get people interested and excited by my work to propel the project forward.
Teaching and helping others is also a large passion of mine. It's so rewarding to find clear and intriguing ways to explain ideas to people so that they can actually implement them in their own work or lives. I strive to be approachable and easy to talk with, so if you are a student or just interested in learning about art or the entertainment industry please don’t hesitate to reach out!
