What the Fandom: Fan Art with Troy David Millhoupt

Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) and our guest Troy David Millhoupt (@troydavidmill)in our segment ‘What the Fandom’ as we discuss Fan Art.

In Troy’s Own Words:

Hi, I’m Troy, an award-winning Creative. Over the last 10+ years I’ve developed unique and innovative solutions, thought-provoking visuals, strategized large campaigns and managed teams of designers for some of the most widely known brands in the world. My ability to work across a broad range of media has made me a creative problem-solver, able to combine amazing designs & marketing strategies. I obsess over details that will only haunt my dreams and go unnoticed by the general public. My background includes directing project life cycles from initial conceptualization to implementation on projects both large and small in scope, for both print and interactive platforms.
