Hey, Happy Saturday everyone, hope you are all doing good and staying safe, hang on it's getting better! Just wanted to take a moment to wish Animator/ Art Director Alan Bodner, a Happy Birthday, that's today, April 18th! While I haven't yet had the chance to photograph Alan in his studio, I was able to make this portrait of Alan and his daughter Olivia a few years ago in our "Pop-Up" studio at CTNExpo.
You may know that Alan "is an award-winning artist and art director whose work ranges from some of the world's most recognized cartoon characters to multidimensional pieces that combine patterns and shapes into unique conceptual presentations. Alan was the art director on the Emmy-nominated Disney Channel hit series Kim Possible (2002) and the bestselling Disney home video Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas (2004). Prior to that, his credits include the Warner Bros. hit animated feature Iron Giant for which he won an Annie Award, and the now-classic Bugs Bunny short Carrotblanca , which was included with the special DVD edition of Casablanca". Alan has recently made the jump from studio animation to creating incredibly Beautiful Fine Art prints.
