Evan Glad

Animation Junior – Spring 2023

Hi, my name is Evan Glad. I am a junior Animation Major. I’m from Canton, IL, a small town just a couple hours drive from Peoria. I specialize in 2D animation and aspire to make cartoons and animated movies one day. I’ve been drawing since I was very little, and, for a long time, believed that I would be making comic books for a living. But when I got to high school, I realized that comics were beginning to die out and that animation was taking center-stage. I watched a LOT of cartoons growing up and still do to this day. They’re a huge part of my life. I want to make animations and stories that other people can love and enjoy.
