So inspiring.. Awesome interview!-Junko
I’m currently working on my bachelors in communication design and I’ll be done in december. In my sophomore year I realized I wanted to do character design when I took my anatomy drawing classes. I am constantly trying to improve my character studies when I’m traveling on the train in Chicago. I totally agree that having a strong understanding with anatomy will open endless opportunities for character design. On another note, I recently got a hold of the out of print "Art of Ratatouille” and when I saw Jason’s work I was blown away! Jason, if you ever read this... I’m currently pursuing my dream to come work at Pixar! I hope to meet you in the next year our two! -Jonathan Girton
Fantastic work. Cheers.Any plans to attend the CTN Expo in November?Christopher Denise
I'm glad Deamer mentioned how important research is to character design. It's inspiring that he works at Pixar.
This is the one interview I have been craving to read! Simply amazing Jason!
