Mason Mastroianni has always been passionate about art. Born with one of those rare artistic gifts, Mason was seldom seen without pen and paper as a child. Growing up, Mason worked to hone and test his talent by entering and winning many local and state art competitions. Mason attended illustration courses at the Rhode Island School of Design, then enrolled in The DAVE School (Digital Animation and Visual Effects) in Orlando. Upon graduation, he took a position as a CG animator in Minneapolis. Mason’s work at Wet Cement Productions earned the company an Emmy award for computer graphic animation. When his grandfather, Johnny Hart passed away in 2007, Mason returned home to upstate NY, to draw, write and carry on Johnny’s legacy.
