Lee Gaskins III:
Raised in Fanwood, New Jersey, he is the proud son of noted nature watercoloristist Lee Gaskins Jr.
After earning an associate’s degree in horticulture, Lee graduated New York City's School of Visual Arts in 1984, attaining his diploma in traditional animation and illustration.
Three years later, he received his teacher of art certification and currently instructs at the Linden Academy of Science and Technology.
Past jobs include: working for Commodore Amiga- providing software and hardware support for dealers, V.A.R.s, O.E.M.s, and the Fortune 500 marketplace. Clients: N.B.C., C.B.S., Colgate-Palmolive Corp., Merrill Heater Productions- Beverly Hills, CA (creator of Hollywood Squares).
As an animator, he provided animations for: Hughes Optical and the United States government ( `star wars' missile development ), working on expansion packs for Maxis’ SimCity, to designing air-conditioners for the Carrier Corporation.
As a traditional illustrator and digital artist, clients have included: educational book publishers- Silver Burdett & Ginn Co, EarthDayGlobal, The Laser's Edge, and various album covers for progressive and metal bands.
Lee has a vast love for nature, as is illustrated by his love of gardening and animals. He has a passion for progressive music, creative films, and the 1904 World’s Fair. He is currently finishing up on writing an `old school’ but unique fantasy novel. He and wife- Barbara have two adorable cats and currently reside in the bowels of New Jersey.
As a Teacher of Art, I find immeasurable pleasure in instructing and helping the youth of Linden, N.J.- to be as creative as they can while embracing techniques, exploration, and rationale.
