Meet Baby Groot’s Visual Father: Anthony Francisco

Who would have thought that a young comic book fan who grew up in the Philippines, would now be working at the biggest animation studio in the world?

Phenomenal Filipino artist, #AnthonyFrancisco is the visual father of #BabyGroot. As a Senior Visual Development Artist at #MarvelStudios , he helped bring life to other Marvel characters, too, such as Black Panther’s Dora Milaje, Okoye & Nakia, Loki for Thor Ragnarok, Tazerface & Teen Groot, and more. He shares his fantastic Global Filipino journey with host, Jannelle So, including insights into how he was able to break through and be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Beaming with a sense of pride, he also describes how he infuses his Filipino influences to his designs. Further, he believes that anyone can actually draw, it takes hard work and continuous learning. So as proof, he gamely teaches our budding artist-host the basic tips in drawing the famous Baby Groot in a pot. Now, he also willingly shares his drawing skills to everyone via an online course “How To Draw From Your Imagination” with Nas Academy. How cool is that?
