Brian Magno is a 3D artist currently studying in the Generalist track of the 2 year program at Gnomon School of VFX. He is also a video game/board game enthusiast and ice cream addict and likes to spend his time teaching new games, both analog and digital, to people of all ages.

His newly found passion for tabletop games furthered his love for gaming and the art of play. He has helped well-known game designer, Ignacy Trzewiczek (Portal Games), design and play test new scenario adventures for the popular board game, Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island. He has also worked with 2Dawn Games to create 3D assets for Ravage’s released DLC, Zombie Apocalpyse.

His dream goals are to someday learn to swing dance and to travel to famous hot springs spots around the world with his significant other.
