I started my professional career making animated films.
During that period, I had the opportunity to work alongside animator Ryan Larkin on what would turn out to be his last professional contract. He was a true genius and it was an honor to have known him.
I also worked for filmmaker Michèle Cournoyer on one of her films – she was a mentor and inspiration to me.
Check out my sketches from the http://ida-eva.com/symposium/ which a lot of animators attended … you might recognize Derek Lamb and others.
