Masayoshi Nakamura AKA Good General is an animation director and illustrator.
Emerged from Nishinomiya, Hyogo Japan, he moved to New York City to study graphic design where he absorbed the city’s rich culture: fine arts, graphic design, photography, street art, and music. Those influence lead him to focus on motion graphics where you can combine all the elements into one art form.
Upon receiving BFA at School of Visual Arts, he started his career as a motion graphic designer and living and working in New York ever since. Through his career, he started focusing more on drawings and hand draw animations in which you can bend and morph in and out of shape, space and time.
