FEATURED ARTIST: Joshua Mulligan

I am an artist who graduated from the College for Creative Studies in 2014. I primarily focus on creating animations and drawings. I enjoy mixing traditional art making techniques with the all the digital tools available. Since graduating college I have started my own animation/design service business called Mulligan Art. I am currently based in Hamtramck, MI.

Along with producing art I have also been instructing art workshops to the Detroit Metropolitan area since 2010.The workshops I provide focus on all the aspects of the animation production pipeline, drawing principles and fundamental art making skills. I like to teach art because encouraging others to create motives myself to never stop creating.

My current major art project is an animated film called “Anxiety”. The film is going to chronicle my personal experience with panic attacks and generalized anxiety. The animation will be drawn with charcoal utilizing the traditional hand-drawn technique developed in the early 1900s. This film is being made possible by the Kresge Arts in Detroit Fellowship.
