Eliza Ivanova found employment as an animator at Pixar after graduating from the animation program at CalArts. Her 2011 graduation film was called The Real McCoy:

Eliza decisively models forms while simultaneously incorporating imaginative marks that add style and movement to her drawings.

    The Real McCoy is a beautiful animated short. I really like how that boxer is so tough that they don’t give up even after losing every last quarter. I’ll be checking out The Dam Keeper.
