Kyle Brown

Senior Character/Creature Concept Artist

Kyle Brown grew up in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. He graduated from the Columbus College of Art & Design with a Bachelor’s degree in Illustration. In elementary school, Kyle first learned about Concept Design after he started looking through a copy of the Art of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. He was fascinated by the works of Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston and immediately knew that was the career he wanted to have.

After CCAD, Kyle moved to Los Angeles to attend the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, which led to roles in the entertainment field as a creature and character designer working predominantly in film and television. He has worked on projects from Warner Bros. 20th Century Fox, Netflix, Sony, The Jim Henson Company, and Disney. Projects include Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, Netflix’s reboot of Lost in Space, Disney’s Mulan, Birds of Prey, Men In Black: International, X-Men Dark Phoenix, Prey, and Cloud Imperium's Star Citizen, with many more on the horizon. Kyle also teaches Creature Design at Gnomon School of Visual Effects.
