Juan Molano, the artist responsible for helping to bring the animated Mighty MolarMan & Friends characters to life, began his journey at the age of 4. His uncle Antonio, a professional illustrator in Bogota, Colombia, showed him the ropes by teaching him the fundamentals in illustration.
More moves—and mentors—were in store for Juan. His parents, Cristina and Gabriel, who have been very influential in his life, moved the family to the Washington state. Along the way he discovered an passion for CG, as well as storyboarding, and eventually adopted animation as his chosen outlet for artistic expression.
Taught at Animation Mentor and iAnimate.net Juan sharpened his skills and begun free lancing. After years of working on various animation projects, he found the ideal fit with Mighty MolarMan & Friends, jumping at the chance to animate and illustrate “Molar in the Mirror,” the new children’s book published by Molar Towne Productions.
