About me

My name is Haj A Jomehri (HAJ) aka ‘Lionbrush’. I was born in Iran and grew up in the Bay Area where I currently live with my wife and 2 kids. In the past, I’ve worked various jobs from sales to machining, but always kept my passion for CG animation & VFX alive with constant learning, creativity, and freelance projects on the side. I love to learn new tools, techniques, & technologies.

Among my projects, I’ve worked on the Absolut Greyhound campaign, the Marvel/Disney Infinity 2.0 campaign for the E3 Expo, 3D prints for EA’s Mass Effect, and I’ve consulted with both major brands & startups to bring their ideas to fruition.

I was awarded a Legacy Effects 3D print of my design, Robobeast, for winning the Stan Winston Robot Design Contest. Stan Winston has always been a huge inspiration for me and the award really helped kickstart my career. I still develop Robobeast’s story in the Zoobots NFT project I created.

If you want to learn more about my past work, the Stan Winston School of Character Arts did an Artist Spotlight and can be found here: https://www.stanwinstonschool.com/
