Many times when students inquire or enroll with us they're amazed when they find out the incredible artists who once attended the Academy as students. Recently I dug up some treasure from our archives and discovered a trove of art from the great John Nevarez when he was here as a student. John eventually became an instructor with us. After several wonderful years enjoying his presence and generous enthusiastic creativity he eventually made it to Pixar where he's enjoyed a fabulous career with his most current credits on "Coco".
Here are some samples of original art that John created in the early 2000's. This is a small sample of a large quantity of work he left us to remember him by from his days at the Academy.
