    Olga Stern is a Toronto-based illustrator and visual-development artist. Her portfolio is a wash of cheerful characters and mediums. Although, it is pretty clear to see her biggest strength is her sweeping background designs. They are exquisitely textured, the colours are vibrant but harmonious, and they are in every sense of the word picturesque. Stern’s previous clients include Pixar, Laika, ACME filmworks, and Head Gear Animation. You can find more of her work by heading to her website.

    I can’t get over the amazing lighting and mark-making by Dice Tsutsumi. Born in Tokyo, he moved to New York in 1993. He has had a remarkable career so far, particularly in the animation industry. At Blue Sky Studios, he worked as a visual development and colour key artist for ‘Ice Age’, ‘Robots’ and ‘Horton Hears a Who’. He later moved on to Pixar as an art director, giving him the chance to work on ‘Toy Story 3’. Dice has also had a children’s book published, titled ‘I can Hear’. Last but not least, I will mention his work on ‘Sketchtravel’ and ‘Totoro Forest Project’, two excellent projects that Dice has helped organise. To see more from this creative dynamo, visit his fantastic blog.

    Robin Joseph

    Robin is a visual developer working freelance in the animation industry. He has an absolutely incredible imagination! What I found by looking at his work were two things: He can draw anything. He can draw anything in a number of unique styles (brilliantly). I’m glad I stumbled on his website, Patch of Orange. In my eyes, Robin Joseph is a master of visual development. And how about that great colour work?

    Robin’s clients include Aardman Feature, BlueSky Studios, Dreamworks Animation, House of Cool, Pixar and Walt Disney Feature Animation.

    Zar is based in North Hollywood, California. She is a Calarts ’09 graduate currently working as a character designer for Pixar. She creates some stunning ‘wood burning’ paintings, which you can find on her blog along with loads of other interesting visual knick-knacks. Well worth a visit. Oh, and for a little giggle check out her rant about wearing 3D glasses!

    Zar has also been interviewed on the Chracter Design Blog, for those who’d like a little more insight.

    Sandeep Menon currently works at Blue Sky Studios as a Designer, having previously worked as a product designer in India before moving into the animation industry. It is evident that some of the skills developed as a product designer have been successfully carried over into Sandeep’s animation concepts. I admire his imagination, but he also brings to the table a great attention to detail that really takes us into his world.
