Born in Tokyo, Tsutsumi 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’.
Tsutsumi 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.
