At Dolphin, Francisco will be in charge of the development and execution of various TVN series involving original and existing intellectual property with Dolphin’s growing NFT (non-fungible token) studio. The company recently partnered with the FTX cryptocurrency exchange to create NFT marketplaces across multiple entertainment and sports verticals.
âAnthony Francisco has the honor of designing some of the most cherished characters in pop culture today, and we are delighted to welcome him to the Dolphin family,â said O’Dowd. “With his talent and imagination already at work, I can say without a doubt that Dolphin’s upcoming NFT releases will be special and unique.”
Prior to Marvel, Francisco was a Senior Concept Artist at Rhythm & Hues, contributing to films like RIPD, Seventh Son, Percy Jackson: Sea of ââMonsters, The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Hunter. In January 2019, he published his first book, Anthony Francisco Art Vol. 1: Uber Monsters, which includes his creations of creatures and artistic concepts.
âNFTs are such an exciting new world for any visual artist,â says Francisco. “I am very excited and grateful to have the opportunity to establish a creative role that does not already exist inside Fun with dolphins. Ideas are endless and it’s exciting for a designer like me to feel that anything is possible. I can’t wait to share what we’re working on with the world.
