While you may believe that an animated project is completed by only a handful of people, it is in fact an intricate weaving of the immense talent and effort of an vast team. From the storyboard artists, to the writers, directors, background designers, animators, voice actors, sheet timers, art directors, illustrators, painters - each of this seemingly endless number of roles is integral to the production of the features and series that we all love so much. 

Perhaps even more surprising, however, is the incredible talent each of these people possess and how it extends to all aspects of their life to bring inspiration, insight, and unique skills that only further the quality of the production on which they work. 

Two to three new artists will be featured every week, and after meeting these artists and discovering just how much of themselves they put into their work, it will be hard to not gain a deeper appreciation for all of those involved, and to spend a little while longer admiring the names that roll when the animation completes.
