Max Lim

 

My name is Hyunwoo Lim (MAX LIM). I got interested in art, particularly in becoming a concept artist. I thought that the profession seemed so fun and interesting because it was able to make every illusion and fantasy and go between past and future. I have worked at Korean animation and game companies, and I eventually moved to San Francisco to attended the Academy of Art University where I majored in Animation Visual Development. Since graduation, I have worked as a concept designer at Lucasfilm Animation for Clone Wars, and now I am working as an Art Director at 4:33. Here you will find samples of professional and personal artworks
