New Chris Sanders Website

Chris Sanders

Director Chris Sanders (Lilo and Stitch), currently helming Crood Awakening at DreamWorks, has launched a website — The site is new and still growing although there is a nice selection of his personal drawings currently posted.

    This is great! What a talent. Did anybody see the “Aloha” vinyl figure at the con? Does anyone know anything about Crood Awakening?

  • absolutely DELICIOUS!

  • I purchased Chris’ sketchbook and the “Maile” vinyl figure at the con, and both are top notch. Chris was just as personable as when I met him the year before, and quite a talented individual.

  • Chuck R,: yes and no. And hey! I thought I was going to break this exclusive! Shucks!
    Yes, those vinyls were great.

    That Lilo has sure developed NICELY…. ;-D

    Mmmmmmmmmm! Yumm!!

  • Awesome sculpt!

  • Fantastic! I have always wanted to see more of Chris Sanders’ personal drawings!

    Sanders is one of my favorite artists, even with just LILO & STITCH under his belt. I think he was one of the best talents Disney could ever have. LILO & STITCH is a masterpiece, and Stitch is one of the best designed characters I have ever seen. I can only hope that he does just as great at Dreamworks. These drawings show an incredible imagination.

  • So glad he finally has a site up! I hope he really puts his stamp on Crood Awakening. Loved Lilo and Stitch. His sketchbooks are amazing .

  • I can’t stop staring at these three fantastic drawings; this is the type of pin-up/girly art I’m striving to create myself. I’m afraid to click the link, for I know I will see even more fantastic examples.

    I don’t know if I should feel jealous or ashamed… maybe I should try to feel inspired.

  • A lot of Chris Sanders’s work reminds me of Thomas Nast. I really like his animal drawings.

  • Mr. Semaj

    His drawings are awesome! Disney should’ve used more of his female designs for their films.

    I too just about died from fangirl joy when I found Chris at Comic-Con. I’d met him once before when he and Dean came to visit us at Disney Sydney, and he’s still a great guy. I bought his sketchbook and the fact that it’s a ‘2’ sketchbook makes me hope he’ll sell the first one on his site sometime.

    Let’s just hope Dreamworks don’t give him any trouble.

    Even though he apparently only draws one type of girl, his art is still pretty damn appealing – has some old-school charm to it but still feels fresh and original.

    Yea, I find a lot of pinup artists fall into that trap but it’s ok if your audience expects a certain look from you. Consistency, you know. Anyway, I’m not about to question Sanders’ taste in women!

    Marc G. & Chris L. I agree with you both. That certainly happens with Milo Manara, Serpieri, Azpiri, Corben and others. But I think it’s ok because it’s honest: These artists put into paper what they find appealing in a human figure… well, all for them EXCEPT Fernando Botero I guess ;-)

    I don’t remember who said that an artist finds his style when he realizes he can paint in no other way…

  • Chuck R.

    Cool, there’s an update already.

  • Boy, that Hawaiian chick sure is HAWT!!! ;-)

  • CG_Worker

    wow, so Lilo’s a hooker;)
