WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
“The most valuable piece of artistic advice I have received was from Franc Reyes, a co-layout artist, when I’d just started working at Disney Feature Animation Florida studio. He said, ‘Always remember we’re making cartoons.’ It was just a casual quip but with an important underlying message for me–not to lose the fun in what I do. I always give 101% in everything that I work on. But to balance my over-thinking, over-drawing, and over-rationalizing tendencies is the decision to keep it fun for both of us — the creators and the audience. Fun channels the passion in my artwork.”
