Nolen Lee is a northwest native having grown up in Portland, Oregon where the rainy weather and lack of sunshine led him to be referred to as the “weird one” by family and friends. After chickening out of pursuing a career in art and earning a Master’s in civil engineering, he came to his senses and returned to his first love of making art and animation. Outside of dealing with belligerent panda attacks, Nolen spends most of his day working as a freelance artist from his home in Seattle. He also got married and reproduced somehow.
