About
Stunning! Amazing!

I am an illustrator and comic artist working out of the San Francisco Bay Area. My work has seen print in the East Bay Express, the Lavapunch comics anthology, and the Missed Connections and Bridge Project anthologies. On the web, my work has appeared on the frontpages of XIP, Retrocrush, Somethingawful, and creativeskin.

Right now, I am currently working as a storyboard artist at Cartoon Network Studios on "Regular Show" by JG Quintel. It's been a culture shock fer sure-- for one, I can't get over the fact that people are paying me cash monies to draw, and for two, it's impossible to get a decent banh mi in Burbank! I used to work in Silicon Valley as a web developer at National Semiconductor. I still remember a lot of HTML, CSS, Java, PHP, Perl, JSP and javascript, HONEST!!!

Are you still going to be working on Regular Show? D:

Yes! I got promoted to supervising director of Regular Show earlier this year when Sean got really busy with Long Live the Royals stuff. I?ve been involved with every episode since ?Struck By Lightning.? Really psyched about this season! So many good ones.

Also I did an episode of Long Live the Royals airing tomorrow! So look out for that too!

In this Hello China episode of the podcast: @tobyjones talks about the evolution of Apple, @calwong brings up his memories of China, and Owen tries to point out every single thing that happened in the episode that is real thing that happened to him but still misses like 80% of them!

real talk: this episode was TURNT

jameslien:

One of my favorite episodes of Regular Show boarded by @oweeeeendennis & @tobytobyjones. The production number for this show was 208 and 8 is regarded as the luckiest number in Chinese culture. What a lucky coincidence ?? I also helped the actors pronounce words like teacher and Kung pao chicken in mandarin during the record session. Watch tonight at 7:30pm!! #regularshow #cartoonnetwork #benson #rigby #???? #????

One of my all time faves. Check it West Coast!

koyamapress:

Rob Clough reviews Robin Nishio?s Wailed on his High-Low blog, and he absolutely nails it. Nishio is set to launch Wailed tonight at a 4-Book Launch at Art Metropole alongside Michael DeForge and Phil Woollam.

?Fifty years from now, this book will provide context for a particular period of art and artists. Whether that context will be part of a continuum, or whether it will be of interest because of its status as an extinct phenomenon is an open question, but this book shows that documenting this period is important.? ? Rob Clough, High-Low

Proud to be in this!
