Artist of the Day: Lisa Keene

Frozen week continues on Cartoon Brew’s Artist of the Day. Lisa Keene could justifiably be called a Disney veteran. Her credits on Disney films date all the way back to 1985’s The Black Cauldron on which she was a background painter. On Frozen, Keene is credited as the film’s assistant art director.

Keene’s challenge in Frozen was to convey a full emotional range of color and light within an icy white setting. As any artist knows though, ice and snow are not uniformly white. Light refracts and reflects allowing for a wide range of possibilities. Add in blizzards and the Northern Lights, and a satisfyingly rich landscape emerges in a frosty environment.

See more of Keene’s work including her personal animal portraits on her portfolio website.
