- Born in Saigon, my birth name means Phoenix; Brooke Gillette is my English and married name. After graduating from UCLA, I stayed in L.A. and attended AI, L.A. as an animation major. Quickly found myself in a very 3D concentrated program, I realized that I wanted to be an illustrator/painter and not an animator. However, my classes had provided solid foundation to build upon, including the ability to learn software quickly. Though not focusing on 3D, I still use Sketch Up and other 3D software on a surface level to help with visualizing some comps for my concept work, esp architecture.
- Future goal: to obtain a M.A. Fine Art after my son is old enough :)
