My name is Justin Milgate. I am a flannel-wearing California transplant that is happy to call the Pacific Northwest home. I am an animator, freelance illustrator, father and husband.

After a roundabout journey, I find myself doing something I have always dreamed of doing and only recently started believing it to be a possibility.
