Like every other guest on that show, Sarah has, as I predicted, gone on to great success.
After wrapping as a visual development artist on The Book Of Life (the gorgeous new animated feature from Reel FX) she moved to Burbank to join the art department on Nickelodeon’s new preschool series Shimmer and Shine.
In this episode, Sarah shares the story of her happy, creative childhood, her positive experience at Ringling College Of Art and Design and the subsequent, disarming struggle of breaking into the animation industry.
…and in the Q&A segment, we respond to a listener question about developing your concept art portfolio.
