Brandon Humfleet

Animator Brandon Humfleet has been an integral member of the Grasshorse team for eleven years. Graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2007, Brandon majored in Media Arts and Animation and first came to Iowa in 2008 as an animator for Budcat Creations, a video game company that was located in Iowa City.

Specializing as a technical artist, Brandon heavily works with our hybrid animation process, such as the work done in Lucy's Workshop for the Iowa Department of Public Health. He’s proud to be a jack of all trades in the studio and often takes a leadership role in development. Many of Grasshorse’s best character performances come to life through Brandon’s skills. This includes the character set up of Sgt. Red in Grasshorse's Storm Water Watch commercial series and Fitz and the Tantrum's "Roll Up" music video. Around the studio, Brandon brings a lot of fun and creative solutions to the drawing table. He is the voice of Dingleberry in Judge Gavel’s Opinion, the YouTube show Puppet Justice began releasing in November of 2020. Aside from his excellent character performances in the show, Brandon is also a collaborator with Steve to set up the most efficient way of utilizing the technology we have at the studio to produce the entertaining, high-quality weekly episodes of Puppet Justice.

As of 2010, he began working as a freelance artist at Grasshorse later developing Shapetrix Entertainment in 2012, a graphics company with a diverse scope of projects. From yardage booklets, brochures, and logos to t-shirt designs, coloring books, and apps, Brandon and Karissa--Brandon’s life partner and Shapetrix artist-- work to create high quality designs. Their latest project, Darren the Dirty Dino recently released as a coloring book.
