Hi, I'm Tilghman,
I'm a motion designer and artist raised on a strict diet of Jackie Chan, sweet raw fish, deep 3's, and late 20th-Century New York. I've been slinging pixels since Lost was on TV and I've worked with HBO, Twitch, and Ford.
The only thing I take seriously is my work and in my free-time I pretend to be a sushi chef.
I'm infatuated with combining photo-real VFX and traditional art. My professional work typically limited to either 2D or 3D, so I bridge dimensions in my spare time.
I've become a Houdini fanatic since Covid hit.. I'm terrible with social media but have a solid understanding of motion graphics, visual effects, cinematography and traditional art.
