Disney I cannot thank you enough for paying for my trip to experience all the awesome things I experienced, and Marshall thank you for the invite! It was so much fun, and now I get to come back and share all my experiences, and my opinions with my readers! I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I love sharing!
Have you ever wanted to know how to draw Dust from Disney’s Planes? I didn’t, that is until someone spent some time teaching me how to do it. I had no idea I could actually draw Dust form Disney’s Planes! I have never been an artist, when I was younger I would try so hard, but to put it blunt – I stunk!
Art was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and has been interested in animation since he was 5 years old, I guess you could say it was his calling in life, because when Art was in high school he already has his mind-set, he know he wanted to work with Disney. Isn’t that cool? I sure think it is, and trust me Art is VERY good at what he does. Especially if he can teach this mommy how to draw anything other than a stick man who looks 5 months pregnant.
Don’t think Art’s just some guy who got lucky, he worked his tail end of to do what he’s doing now. He studied illustration at Antelope Valley College, and went on to Animation Guild’s American Animation Institute. Art was discovered by Disney while he was working at Turner Animation on a show called Cats Don’t Dance. Good thing Disney picked Art up, because not only is he good at what he does he’s a great teacher, and very nice to be around.
He explained to us what they are faced with, and wow they really are faced with hard work. He explained how they are limited to three things to get emotion, expression, and personality it’s in the eyes, the mouth, and sounds. Those three things is all they have to work with to bring the airplanes to life, to give them their unique personalities! You know, they cannot waive their finger in the air when they are talking, or toss their arms up when they are scared, or scratch their head for that matter.
While I was in LA for the Disney Planes Event we had the opportunity to meet with not only Art Hernandez, but Dan Abraham too!
