Shaun Escayg was born in twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. At age 16, he was given a PA summer job at Mc Cann Erikson. On one of his routine days of fetching coffee and delivering mail he was offered a chance to design the calendar cover of the Royal Bank Of Trinidad and Tobago. An offer he eagerly accepted. The cover was a huge success and confirmed his interest in pursuing art as a career. Later that year Shaun met with one of Carnival’s legends Peter Minshall. He had always been inspired by Minshall’s work and landed an interview with the legendary Mass-man for his school thesis.
At 20, Shaun attended the School of Comunication Arts Of Raliegh NC, USA where he pursued a career in 3D animation.
