I’m Benjamin Moody and I’m a freshman animation major from Naperville, IL. I grew up with art throughout my life since doodling through elementary school to taking animation classes in high school. My childhood was influenced by plenty of animation ranging from animes like Gundam to cartoons like Looney Tunes. I draw often both by myself and with friends to broaden my range of art styles that I can work with since we often challenge ourselves with drawing in various cartoon styles. Outside of drawing and animating, I’m a regular gamer who mainly deals with fighting games and the Pokemon franchise. Additionally, I figure out tunes by ear on my trombone when it isn’t quiet hours on campus. I think of myself as a creative problem solver and hope to continue developing my artistic skills through my time here at Bradley University.
