So on March 7th at the Madeby Gallery in Sarasota, Fl. I’ll have a showing of my work. I’ll have roughly 30-35 pieces in the show with most of those being prints made from digital paintings. I’ll have a handful of traditional media originals (oil, watercolor, charcoal) But I want to have more. This is the first in a handful of sketches I’m trying to finish in the next week or so in order to punch up the number of non prints in the show.
For 21 years Aaron worked with Disney helping to create some of the greatest animated films ever made. During that time he worked as an animator or supervising animator on "The Rescuers Down Under", "Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin", "The Lion King", "Pocahontas", "Mulan" and more.
In 2003 he was co-director of "Brother Bear" for which he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature Film.
After "Brother Bear" he helped to develop several projects but ultimately left Disney to pursue an opportunity back home in Florida. Aaron recently served as 2D Animation Supervisor and Character Designer for the "The Bear and the Hare" an advertisement loved by millions around the world. He is currently also working on a new animated short film, once again involving bears called "Snow Bear".
