Artist of the Day: Steven A. MacLeod

Croods week continues for our Artist of the Day profile. Steven A. MacLeod worked as a storyboard artist on The Croods as his first job straight out of college, bounced over to How to Train Your Dragon, then as that wrapped up, he switched back again to The Croods. On his blog he shows off several design ideas that he contributed for Croods teaser posters such as the above image.

    i think Steve’s work shows the kind heart that he has. excellent draftsman with great concepts and ideas. once, back in the school days, i was doing this sidewalk chalk art thingy, and Steve came walking up with his baby in a stroller and said, “say hi to uncle Phil”. made me feel real good.
