Giovanni Nakpil grew up in the Philippines being greatly influenced by sci-fi, horror and anime. He moved to Canada with his family in his teens and studied Computer Graphics at Seneca College where he began his interest in all things CG. Giovanni currently works for Industrial Light & Magic as a digital artist, creating creatures for films such as Pirates of the Caribbean 2, War of the Worlds and The Spiderwick Chronicles. His most recent work can be seen in Star Trek in which he was the creature model supervisor.

Giovanni Nakpil shares his skills and insights about sculpting in d'artiste Character Modelling 3 "... by conceiving a creature in clay, and then taking it through the process of modeling the forms, refining the topology, to the final steps of rendering and presentation."
