About Brian Germain . . .

Artist, Animator, Teacher, and former Soldier, Brian's birth in Seattle was announced with chaos and destruction as an arsonist's fire leveled a nearby hotel in 1970. Since then he has been a walking omen of disaster and has been blamed for the May 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, a St.Louis earthquake, and the toilet seat being repeatedly found in the "up" position.

Brian's love of drawing began at age 5 when he discovered that it was the easiest way to get attention. Awed by the animation genius of Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng and the distinctive drawing style of Mort Drucker, he shifted from drawing planes and fire trucks to creating characters.

At the age of ten, Brian began slowly migrating eastward, first to St.Louis, then Washington, D.C., Italy, and finally Iraq while serving with the U.S. Army in 1991. His return trip brought him back to Orlando to study Computer Animation and teach Art, and then Los Angeles to savor the "flavor" of Hollywood. In 2007 he finally completed the circle ending up right back where he started in Seattle; a little older, a little wiser, and saddled with debt.

In 2001 Brian joined I've Had It! Productions as a one-man Art Department which he continues (but denies) to this day.
