One more before I leave on vacation. A few sketches I did of sisters Anna and Elsa from Frozen. These were drawn early in the process of character development on the girls. For product we start concepts and development about 12-16 months out from the film release date. In this case character art was needed for application on product we were working on at the time. Since the characters are 3D in the film, translating them to traditional 2D presented a bit of a challenge. Especially since at this time the final look of the characters was still evolving.
With just 160 posts, I’ve somehow been able to attract 3,000 followers to my little Tumblr. I wanted to take a quick second to say……..
Thank you for taking the time to check out my art. You know I’m a huge Disney fan myself, so I want to make sure I’m doing my best with every project I work on and everything I share with you all.
I promise a lot more fun Disney stuff coming your way really soon. Stay tuned!
Another of my original pencil Tink drawings from “Art of Tink”, where it appeared in color.
Shortly after my years at Disney Animation Studios (then known as Disney Feature Animation) were over, I worked on a few projects for Disney Toon Studios before finding my current home designing for the Disney Stores. One of those projects was “Cinderella 3: A Twist In Time”. My first job on that project was to help develop the character of Prince Charming. He would be playing a much more “active” role in this film. So at first I was thinking, “Is he younger, more athletic ?” I wasn’t quite sure at the time, so I got to drawing. Seen here is a little bit of my exploration. You can see it’s all a bit of a variation on a theme. As we got closer to production, his design fell closer to the original film. We didn’t need to redesign him after all, just give him a bit more character for the animators and story artists to play with. It was a fun assignment and project to work on.

I’ve posted the color art before, and the product it ended up on. So, here are a few of my original pencil “Art of Tink” sketches.
Whenever we get a visit from Glen Keane at work like we did this week , I always find that it leaves me inspired with mermaids on the brain. Morning Ariel sketch.
Another one for throwback Thursday. I found images online of this Pocahontas art plate that I worked on back in ‘94 when I first started with Disney. I was only 19 at the time. But I have to say, it wasn’t half bad! I even got credit on the back. My next official credit after this was on the film “Hunchback of Notre Dame”.
Throwback Thursday! Back in 2010 I was asked to do a special gift for Naomi Campbell by one of her closest friends for her 40th birthday. “OF COURSE !”, I said. After all who doesn’t love Naomi Campbell? Naomi is a Disney fan as well, so I was given the creative direction to create a magazine cover featuring Naomi and some Disney girls. This is what I came up with. A throw back to the glamour days of the 90’s Supermodels. No one else but Naomi should be in the middle anyway. I later received the sweetest thank you note from Naomi herself. It’s currently framed in my home office.
