Justin Owens is a painter, visual storyteller, and teacher. He's most happy when outside painting en plein air with oils, but can also be frequently found in the studio concocting new and interesting creatures, or working digitally and exploring new imagined worlds. He's a strong believer that anyone can develop artistic skills and that it's not a talent that one must be born with. He brings that idea to his teaching style, helping his students to develop their skills and grow as artists.
Animation Mentor is the original online animation school. Founded in 2005, professional working animators from major studios such as Pixar, Industrial Light & Magic, and DreamWorks teach aspiring animators to become an animator.
