Essington got his start in art at the age of
five; sixteen years ago he traded in his crayons
for a computer. He has identified not only his
style, but his natural ability to create. His
multi-talents lend themselves to the diversity
and quality needed for the range of projects
handled by his agency. Michael attended California
State University of Northridge where he majored
in Art. Computerized Graphic Design was not
yet taught at the university, so Michael can
also tack onto his accomplishments teaching
himself to do what he does so well.
Michael has received digital art recognition
and been the Profile Artist of the Month in
Micro Publishing News four times; and has been
a guest speaker for the Los Angeles City Schools
Digital Art Program. Original pieces have been
published in nationally-distributed magazines
such as PEI and several others. Some of Michael's
other accomplishments have included ad work
for a nationwide vitamin company, as well as
monthly layouts in AVN Online, Klixxx &
Cybersocket. He has created digital art for
clients ranging from Adobe to Universal Pictures.
Web site projects have ranged from Lollapalooza
to Vivid Video.
