I really love this guy's style...
Born in Mexico City and raised in Tijuana, Gutierrez has completed various films, cartoons, illustrations and paintings exploring his love of Mexican pop and folk culture.
Gutierrez attended the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), where he received his BFA & MFA in Experimental Animation under Jules Engel. There he created the 3D short Carmelo, which won the 2001 Student Emmy Award in animation and was screened at various festivals around the world, including Kodak's Emerging Filmmakers Program at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. In 2000, Gutierrez worked under animation legend Maurice Noble, for the art direction of Chuck Jones' Timberwolf for Warner Bros. In 2001, he began creating Jorge Gutierrez' El Macho De La Cruz, an animated web series for Sony Pictures.
Gutierrez has also done character design on many animated series including Nickelodeon's ChalkZone, as well as WB's ¡Mucha Lucha!, and Disney's The Buzz on Maggie for which he was nominated for a 2006 Annie Award in character design. As a writer, he's worked on Scholastic's Maya & Miguel as well as Disney's Brandy & Mr. Whiskers.
Gutierrez won two Annie awards (Best TV Animated show & Best TV Character Design) and one Emmy (Best TV Character Design) working on his passion project for Nickelodeon, El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, along with his partner, muse and wife, Sandra Equihua. He was also nominated for three Annie awards (Best Film, Best Director & Best Character Design) for "The Book of Life".
He created some of the sketches in Cartoon Network's Mad.
In 2012, Gutierrez directed at Reel FX a computer-animated adventure feature film with a Romeo and Juliet style love story set against a Mexican "Day of the Dead" backdrop. The film, with the official title The Book of Life, was co-produced with 20th Century Fox Animation and was released on October 17, 2014. He earned his first Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Animated Feature Film in 2014, only to lose the award to How to Train Your Dragon
In February 2015, Reel FX and Gutierrez announced a multi-year, multi-picture deal. Since then, he has been directing and writing his second feature film, titled Kung Fu Space Punch. Gutierrez described it as a "funny mash-up of some of my favorite influences: '90s Kung Fu films, Spaghetti Westerns of the '60s, and the epic Space Adventures of the '70s, '80s and today."
In August 2, 2017, it was reported that Gutierrez would direct The Billion Brick Race, a spin-off of The Lego Movie, for Warner Animation Group. However, on February 8, 2018, it was reported that Gutierrez had left the project.

Experience is not what happens to a man.
It is what a man does with what happens to him.
The future is literally in our hands to mold as we like. But we cannot wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow is now.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can somehow become great.
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
