The Animation Academy is very happy and proud to announce that Chance Raspberry, (that's his real name), long time student and assistant instructor with the school's Teen Program, has been offered and accepted a staff position as a Character Layout Artist on the 18th season of production for "The Simpsons" animated television series.
Here's a candid shot of Chance in action at a recent session of the Academy's Teen Program.
Chance Raspberry joins the ranks of many other students from the Academy who've successfully broken into the industry. He first studied with us a few years ago and established himself through his talent, dedication and enthusiasm for the art. While continuing his involvement with our school, he went on to complete his education by virtue of a Bachelor of the Arts Degree he'll be awarded from California State University in Northridge (CSUN) on Wednesday of this week.
Congratulations, Chance! Best wishes for your continued success and a happy and creative future from everyone here at the Academy.
