In this episode, I speak with Vaughn Ling, who's work is as varied as the number of mis-matched socks in my dresser. He's an accomplished sketcher, painter, modeler, renderer, designer, teacher, 3D printer and DIY-er. We discuss tons of topics such as the importance of fundamentals in art education and sharing your work. We take a look at some of the most notable projects Vaughan has been involved in throughout his career. Vaughan even answers some questions submitted by you guys, the listeners! This one's fun!
Vaughan Ling is an LA-based concept designer who creates work under the pseudonym HEAVYPOLY. When I think of Vaughan, two words come to mind, prolific and diversitile. Yes, I actually had to create a new word to describe the uniqueness and variety of his skills and design work. Vaughan historically taught at the Concept Design Academy and Vaughan's clients include Disney, Mattel, Marvel, Honda, Trek Bicycles, Warner Animation Group and many, many more.
