Hannah Kang graduated the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in 2014. Hannah has been delivering characters, creatures, and assets on projects like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Avengers Infinity War, Pacific Rim 2, Underwater and many more. Legacy provides one of the industry's most diverse portfolios requiring you to work on projects styles ranging from Call of Duty, Doom, and Crash Bandicoot to Avengers, Iron Man and the Georgia Lottery's Flying Pig!!!. While Legacy tends to focus on real-world translation of costumes and character builds that are created to be worn by actors. Hannah's personal style is often referred to as "bleedingly cute," showing a love for a feature animation style and a strong side of dorkiness--all with the aim of making viewers' first response to laugh out loud. Hannah has been teaching professional and student artists improve their portfolios for the past two years, and considers herself a student still--with a strong pursuit of continuous education. Hannah would like to someday work on children's books and create a universe of her own.
