Rodolphe Guenoden is one of those artist whose work you would stumble on every now and then online. However, it wasn’t until his contribution’s to the Flight Anthology I really took note. To stand out in a creative roster such as Flight’s is a tall ask, but Mr Guenoden’s work definitely did just that. My personal favourite, and possibly most people’s, was in Flight Volume 2, simply called “The Ride”.
Though an excellent comic artist, Rodolphe Guenoden’s day job is actually in animation. He has worked as a traditional animator for over 20 years. Some of his Supervising Animator credits include The Prince of Egypt (1998) and The Road to El Dorado (2000). Working within Dreamworks Animation, some of his Storyboard Artist work includes the very successful Madagascar (2005) and both the Kung Fu Panda movies (2008/2011).
If you are a fan of Kung Fu Panda, there is a really nice interview with Rodolphe Guenoden over at Art of VFX.
