Man Arenas

Jacinto Manuel Arenas is Belgium born, but a citizen of Spain. He is a motion picture production designer, art director and a comic book creator. Mr. Arenas is a visual development artist for Walt Disney Animation Studio and has worked as production designer on the animated films Help! I’m a Fish (2000), Space Chimps (2008), The Gruffalo (2009).

I was introduced to his work via his book Yaxin le faune Gabriel. Co-authored with Dimitri Vey, Yaxin is part comic and part poetry. His artwork, poetic in it’s execution, suites the fantasy fable perfectly.

His personal tumblr is filled with sketches, and pictures of his process. I particularly love seeing his water-colour thumbnails.
