Hi! I am Arpi Krikorian. Very nice to meet you.
I believe people come into our lives for a reason. In 10th grade, my art teacher told me about Art Center College of Design’s (ACCD) High School program and I was hooked. I spent the next 3 years of all my Saturdays at ACCD’s beautiful hillside campus, completely in love with art making. On my 18th birthday, I was accepted into their undergarduate program.
Three wonderfully torturous years later, I received my BA in Illustration. Ready to take on the world, I hit all the bumps one could imagine. At one time, I thought someone was throwing those curveballs at me like a tennis ball machine.
In the midst of all the chaos, I married my high school sweetheart, the love of my life, and started a wonderful chapter in my life story.
Four years later, an internship led to a full time artist on staff position at the incredible Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank where I worked with a group of people that were a collection of everyone’s class clown with incredible drawing skills, amazing imaginations and HUGE hearts. I was a storyboard revisionist for the “Angry Beavers” and on our down time, I also freelanced for “Hey Arnold”, “CatDog”, “Oswald” and “Dora the Explorer.”
