My name is Cody Deegan. I studied film and animation at CALARTS in the early 1990’s, after which I freelanced for ad agencies doing television commercials and web development. Anatomy and figure drawing have always been an important topic of study for me.
I’ve explored many different artistic disciplines. I helped teach a couples dance class for 6 years through a local community college. I taught airbrushing at an art store in Reno. I wrote and published six books on building camera stabilizer equipment for independent filmmakers. I developed large-scale dynamic websites for big-name clients through various reputable ad agencies across the country. I’ve been playing guitar and composing music since I was a teenager. I’ve designed logos for businesses. I create animations. I oil paint. I’ve taught video production classes to high school students. I engineered a completely new type of articulated anatomy art mannequin. I created an iPad app. And I’ve been raising my son since the day he was born.
I value honesty, integrity, and compassion.
Painters whose works of art have inspired me are Julien Dupre, Francisco Pradilla y Ortiz, Léon Augustin Lhermitte, Juliette Aristides, Chie Yoshii, Scott Waddell, and Cesar Santos (to name just a few).
Here is a small sampling of art projects I have created:
