Jorge Sevilla III, has been fascinated with the arts from a young age, initially by noticing his ability to draw recreations of comic book covers he collected in his younger years. Throughout his childhood, his natural abilities manifested into something unique. His original dream was to become a Disney animator with intricate drawings and storyboards.
While in high school, he continued to broaden his artistic scale, he studied under the Film and Visual Arts department and realized art is something he could bring to life in many aspects. He then went to attend Azusa Pacific University to complete his B.A. in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Animation and Graphic Design. While attending Azusa, he was tasked as the storyboard artist and artistic director for two student films, as well as a special effects supervisor.
After graduating, Jorge was able to continue his work in animation and graphic design by working for a variety of clients including; Invisible Children*, A-1 Self Storage, Mikelson Yachts, and CYT to name a few. He has been the Senior Graphic Designer for Chuze Fitness, creating all print and web advertisements for the 17 + clubs. As a freelance artist, he also continues his passion in supporting the community and surrounding businesses with logos, murals, paintings, and many varieties of advertising and educational efforts.
Jorge believes in bringing ideas and stories to life with art, whether that entails brightening up the walls within a local school, a children’s bedroom with Winnie the Pooh, or bringing vision into any story that gets to be told. We all know the quote, “Out of Sight, Out of Mind,” well perhaps your stories, your business, your vision is worth being seen. Jorge is the man to make that happen, he is eager to see what else he can create and share with the world.
*Invisible Children is an amazing film created by a team (including Jorge) who traveled to Uganda in efforts to bring awareness to the atrocities that were happening in Africa to the children who fell victim to war lords. These children were forced to kill against their will. It is an inspiring film to take action for those in this world who could use the love and attention we are so blessed to have here in the states. It is a film worth watching if you have not seen it. Jorge’s animation was used throughout the film.
