More info on the artists:
While still studying at Falmouth School of Art, Steve was hired as a cel painter on An American Tail 2 where he quickly got promoted into the Effects Department - that was a first stage of his impressive career in animation. Since then, Steve has worked on such famous projects as Balto and Space Jam, as well as numerous Walt Disney features such as Mulan (which received an Annie Award for Best Visual Effects), Tarzan, Emperor’s New Groove and Lilo and Stitch. Steve has also a Masters Degree in Design and more recently focuses on painting, freelance illustration work and teaching.
Although initially trained and working in film editing, Fraser found his way into the animation industry when he was hired as a special effects animation assistant on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Since then he has worked on multiple commercial and feature projects, including Space Jam and Walt Disney’s Tarzan. He’s also an author of “Setting The Scene: The Art & Evolution of Animation Layout” published by Chronicles, as well as a visiting lecturer, sharing his knowledge with young animation students around the globe. Most recently Fraser has established and been involved with Animation Centrifuge - an organisation aiming at connecting people and promoting new talent within the animation world.
