Vinh co-founded the company Lascaux to address “the innate impulse that all humans have to express ourselves visually.” After working as the design director for the NYTimes.com from 2006 to 2010, he decided to follow his entrepreneurial itch, and raised $700,000 in start-up funding for Mixel, a free iPad app, which launched in November 2011.

Why Otis?
Right time at the right place. I have wanted to attend art school since I was young but was always told it wasn’t an option. When I moved out to L.A. and had some real life/work experience, I knew that art school (Otis) was the best option for my career path and for me as an artist.

What's Next?
I’m sending out my manuscript and trying to sell my character design, so I’ve become somewhat of an entrepreneur, oddly enough. I’ve started a face painting business (with classmates!), a window painting business, and a design consulting business. I’m doing a lot of things, but it’s fun. Exciting.

 

Hometown?
I was raised in Beaumont, California, but I've been in L.A. for the past fifteen years.
