Brad Pattullo was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and has been doing freelance illustration since middle school. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan in 1995, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2002.
His first job in animation was working for Will Vinton Studios on the acclaimed but short-lived "Gary and Mike" television series, where he rose from the status of rookie animator to one of the most valued members of the production team. He has since worked on several animated television programs, including "The PJs", "Celebrity Deathmatch", "Phantom Investigators", and "A Little Curious", as well as several commercial and music video projects.
His independent films have been screened in such venues as Sundance Film Festival, Kalamazoo Animation Festival International, Siggraph's Electronic Theater, Brooklyn Internation Film Festival, Tehran International Film Festival, and the G4 television network.
Brad is beginning his fourth year as an instructor of film and animation in the Art Department of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, a well-known and well-respected animation program. Prior to joining the Edinboro faculty, he taught for two years in the Department of Animation and Digital Media at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. He was also a special topics instructor in the Continuing Education program at CCS and continues to teach workshops and special programs relating to film, animation, and drawing throughout Pennsylvania and the Midwest.
