About the author

Brian Gossett

As a kid, Brian Gossett drew his He-Man figures rather than playing with them. Soon he began putting muscles on everything he drew, from manatees to ice cream. Today, Brian lives in sunny Santa Monica pursuing his dream of starring in the sequel to “The Shogun Assassin.” While waiting to fulfill that dream, he works as a freelance designer/art director/illustrator and teaches a storyboarding class at The Art Center College of Design. Brian received his BFA in Graphic Communication and Design at the University of Houston in 2000 graduating Magna Cum Laude. Since then he has been involved in a wide variety of projects over the years both small and large. Some of the projects he has recently worked on are the 2008 Kid’s Choice Awards Show Promo as lead designer with Roger, a spot for Cellular South called “Taylor’s World” also as lead designer with BNS, the Ditech “People Are Smart” campaign with Nylon, and art directed the Apple iPod “Party” commercial as well as the welcoming animation to the AppleTV product with Logan. To this day Brian still puts He-Man muscle into his work, figuratively not literally.

    It’s not Three Frames, but it is a meme. It’s those stereoscopic animated gifs you see all over Three frames is something else, but they have that similar jittery feel.
