Brandon Kihl is a self-taught design artist and sculptor, utilizing a variety of media including clay, metal, traditional illustration, digital photography, and computer drafting. In August of 2000, Brandon founded Kihl Studios to produce sculpture and creature design, and to provide custom design and fabrication services for a variety of clients.

Eventually, this led to work in the film & entertainment industry which has since utilized Brandon’s talents and trade skills in a variety of projects and occupations including Production Designer, Art Director, Sculptor, Prop-Builder, Set Builder, Illustrator, Creature Designer, and Special Effects Supervisor. Film production, art design, custom props and fabrication services are now the primary direction for Kihl Studios as an industry resource.
