About Mauricio Abril:

I’m a recovering Molecular Biologist turned Concept Artist who struggles everyday with a severe addiction to pizza.

Once upon a time I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Molecular, Cell & Developmental Biology, but I learned a little too late that it didn’t fit me as well as I had hoped. Eventually I found another one in my size at the Art Center College of Design in Entertainment Design. This one thankfully fit just right.

I have since been working as an Art Director/Concept Artist for various entertainment companies, most notably The Walt Disney Company, as well as a part time instructor at schools such as the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and CGMA. I’m currently an Art Director at BRC Imagination Arts where I work on multiple experiential entertainment projects.

When I’m not working at work, I can be found working at home on my own author/illustrator projects, some of which include children’s picture books, comic book-based films, and other writing projects. I also love playing the guitar and singing songs in F major, but I promise if you ever lend me your ears I’ll try not to sing out of key.
