Rudy Agresta has been a professional working animation artist since the mid 1980s. His passion for animation and love for drawing landed him freelance work in NYC where he did character/show concept design and animated on many TV commercials. He has done extensive work in the industry, having produced a variety of projects for a number of studios and private clients, doing story, design, and actual animation. His work is done in the 2D Traditional animation style. Whether drawing on paper and scanning those into a computer for refining and coloring, or drawing directly into the computer with a digital drawing tablet, the animation is done in the traditional style of hand drawn, frame by frame animation.
Rudy is also a fine artist working in a variety of mediums as well as an accomplished musician/composer, having composed original music for several animated projects.
Rudy is launching a new comic strip called ASTROBEAR (c 2022 Rudy Agresta). Samples of the strip and what goes into the comic strip making process are within the ASTROBEAR pages.
Rudy currently is a professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Department of Visual & Performing Arts, Florham Campus, teaching traditional (hand-drawn) 2D animation studies at the undergraduate and graduate student level.
