My name is Nick Dodge, and I am a graduate from Exceptional Minds, which is a vocational program for young adults on the autism spectrum. We learn animation, post-production, and visual effects. My favorite project has to be the seven-second vine. It is an animation project where I had to recreate a classic cartoon gag in my own way. I made my own characters and style for this specific project. Now, I currently work part time at the VFX studio.
I had done an internship at the Cedar Rapids Fire Department, working as a graphic designer for their website. I also own a paid YouTube channel dedicated to animation. It primarily focuses on educational dinosaur animations; some of these videos have several million views.
I hope to publish some of my ideas into graphic novels or possibly an animated series. Most of my art style was influenced by anime, or Japanese animation, such as Pokemon.
