The one and only John Nevarez

Among the most celebrated students we've ever had here at The Animation Academy is John Nevarez. John was already a working professional when he enrolled in our Adult Program, yet he was undistinguished from many others in the field. He spent some time in our Concept Storysketch class under Philip J. Felix. It wasn't long before John started to seperate from the pack with artwork like this.

John created the drawing above with blue pencil and graphite while at the Academy. He eventually went on to become an instructor with us. He also works on staff when the school is contracted for production development. The most recent project involving John being the seventh Crash Bandicoot video game, "Crash Nitro Kart".

John is employed at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California and is among the most highly regarded storyboard artists in the animation industry. John is a remarkable individual. You can see more of his art by visiting his blog through this link.
